Date of Award

Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies
Eating the flesh of animals to most cultures has become 'natural' and people are socially and economically forced to actually not think critically about what they are consuming every day. Based on what we know about the mental states of animals and about the negative human and ecological consequences of eating animals, people should make the moral choice to become vegetarian.
