Into the Open: What Animals Can Teach Us about Death

Filed under Academic, Events on January 23, 2017.

What counts as a “good” death for animals? How can we be sure that we facilitate such a death for the creatures with whom we have developed such intimate bonds? In this public lecture, Jessica Pierce will explore how moral judgments about animal life affect end-of-life care for our animal companions The ethics of end-of-life care, for human and animal alike, challenge us to consider the differences and similarities between human and animal loved ones in fraught circumstances.

This event will take place on Wednesday, 1 February at 7 p.m. at the Millhopper Branch Library.
