It is bad that there is so much inequality among people. But the situation may appear even worse once we expand our outlook to include animals. Even a person who has a life barely worth living plausibly has a better life than the life of a mouse or an ant. There is greater inequality between people and animals than there is just among us people. And yet, if animals are typically worse off than people, does that mean that we should prioritize their welfare over the welfare of people?

Gruber’s 30-minute presentation will be followed by a Q&A.

This event is free and open to the Springfield College community and the public.

This presentation is part of the Literature, Writing, and Journalism and Humanities and Social Sciences Colloquium Series.
