This event is 21 and over

Endoxa Booking and Lil Indies are hosting a night of philosophical discussion and drinking. The topic for April 25th is a possible tension between animal rights and human interests: Is using non-human animals for medical testing and experimentation morally acceptable? How should we think about our moral obligations to other animals? Do we even have moral obligations to non-human animals? Do non-human animals have rights? If so, do their rights override our pursuit of advancements in medicine and technology? Join us on April 25th when we will discuss this topic in terms of recent debates in contemporary philosophy.

This event is intended to foster discussion and drinking in a fun atmosphere. There will be a brief (15 - 20 minutes) presentation of the issue followed by general discussion and argument. All are strongly encouraged to participate in the discussion (that’s the whole point!).
