Skrócony opis:

• Non human animals are part of human life in many ways. As a matter of fact, human civilization could not be possibile without the extensive use that Homo sapiens sa made of non human species. In the last two centuries human-animal relationships have been more and more under scrutiny of critical reflection and philosophical thinking in order to propose their reform. Human/animal relationships are nowadays part of a process of moral reformation and, in a sense, they can be regarded as a part of moral progress. The course will focus on the idea of reform of human/animal relationships as moral progress through both an examination of the idea of moral progress in its philosophical underpinnings and theoretical aspects and an analysis of animal ethics theories and their outcomes in daily life contexts of human/animal interactions.
