Mass Humanities, Harvard Book Store, and the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics welcome philosopher and author CHRISTINE M. KORSGAARD--Arthur Kingsley Porter Professor of Philosophy at Harvard University--for a discussion of her latest book, "Fellow Creatures: Our Obligations to the Other Animals." In the book, Korsgaard presents a compelling new view of humans' moral relationships to the other animals. She argues that human beings are not more important than the other animals, that our moral nature does not make us superior to the other animals, and that our unique capacities do not make us better off than the other animals.
