Animal Rights: An Introduction. (Part 1 of 5)

24 May 2006, University of Heidelberg

In his power point presentation, "Animal Rights: An Introduction", Tom Regan begins by contrasting the fact that many people make a firm distinction between the animals they live with (cats and dogs, for example) and other animals. He explains how it is that Animal Rights Advocates (ARAs) extend the same sense of compassion and respect that they feel for companion animals, on the one hand, to the other animals who routinely are turned into food, clothing, and the like, on the other. Not all ARAs, he explains, arrive at this destination in the same way. In particular, some need to be convinced; some need a logical argument. In his presentation, Dr. Regan accepts this challenge and invites others to consider the main factual and moral questions whose answers inform the conviction that animals have rights.
