Utilitarianism And Banana Ethics

Eccorazzi

There’s a particular argument used against ethical veganism that crops up rather too frequently.

Spirituality, Speciesism, and The Ethical Symmetry Gap

Eccorazzi

As Gary Steiner states in Animals and the Limits of Postmodernism, “The origin of ethical principles is not some detached transcendent standpoint. Ethical principles derive from this intuition of “mattering,” not the other way around.
