Tom Regan: The Animal Kingdom Bill of Rights
In case you haven’t heard of him, Tom Regan is a philosophy professor at NC State who has been one of the most important and compelling advocates for animal rights in the academic world since early on in the movement. His clarity of expression and his passion for the subject make his thinking accessible to anyone—whether they’ve studied philosophy or not—and this video, which I discovered recently on YouTube, is a great example of Professor Regan’s prodigious abilities, both as a thinker and as an advocate for animals.
The excerpt is from a debate that took place in 1989 for the BBC—it’s well worth watching and passing around to friends who may be new to the philosophy behind animal rights.
