Lecture: Architecture, Human Structures and Animal Personhood

16:00–17:30 CET (UTC +2)
Warsaw (on-site event)

Lecture on vegan ethics

Dr. Thomas Aiello is a Professor of history, Africana studies and anthrozoology at Valdosta State University in Georgia, USA. He authored several articles and a book on animal studies.

The Tyranny of Architecture defends the practice of vegan ethics in a way fundamentally unique among such arguments. It makes the case that in a human society built on artificial constructs, the only demonstrable ethics not part of an imagined community is that of respecting the right to life and contentment, construed for farmed animals as adequate food, space, and other basic amenities, along with the right not to be tortured and killed for the unnecessary whims of humans existing mentally within a subset of artificial constructs that do not include those nonhuman animals.

Professor Aiello argues that the development of such an apologetics is important, as though veganism is not a religion, its adherents are devoted to the core principles of veganism in much the same way that religious people are (even creating within the movement legitimate schisms like abolitionism versus welfarism). That being the case, apologetics and comprehensive philosophical defenses of veganism demonstrating its particular necessity in a postmodern age are inordinately relevant.

The lecture will be held in English.
