Philosophy Event Takes Humans to Court

Philosophy Event Takes Humans to Court

On February 20, the Philosophy Department, with the support of the Office of Student Life, the Philosophy Club, and Auraria Students for the Humane Treatment of Animals, hosted a talk by Professors Katharine Loevy (Pacific University) and Richard McGregor (Vanderbilt University) on the 10th century Islamic text The Case of the Animals versus Man before the King of the Jinn. The seemingly simple premise of the story is that the animals charge the humans with unjust enslavement. While projecting drawings from the text, Professors McGregor and Loevy showed the rich philosophical implications of this text for comparative religion, animal ethics, and our contemporary understanding of the history of Islam. Information about future philosophy department events can be found here.
