JOURNAL 3 FEMINISM & SPECIESISM

Qu.1) Choose one article from RMP Ethics of Gender and outline the main arguments (p.212-252) and consider with UNSDG #5. Qu.2) Should animals have rights? Compare Roger Scruton’s and Peter Singer’s positions (RMP p.427-443). Who has the stronger argument and why? Qu.3) Explain what Peter Singer means by “speciesism.” Provide an example by analogy. Qu.4) What does Kant mean when he says we have indirect duties towards animals? Is there a way deontologists can argue that we have direct duties to animals? Consider animal rights in conjunction with UNSDGs # 12/13/15.
