Utilitarianism, Vegetarianism, and Animal Rights
Tom Regan
Philosophy & Public Affairs, 1980


Philosophy is notorious for its disagreements. Give two philosophers the same premises and we are not surprised that they disagree over the conclusion they think follows from them. Give them the same con- clusion and we expect them to disagree about the correct premises. My remarks in this essay fall mainly in this latter category. Peter Singer and I both agree that we have a moral obligation to be vege- tarians. This is our common conclusion. We do not agree concerning why we have this obligation.

Some Animals Are More Equal than Others
Pickering Francis & Norman
Philosophy, 1978

A number of philosophers have argued for what they call ‘animal liberation’, comparing it directly with egalitarian causes such as women’s liberation and racial equality and suggesting that, if racism and sexism are rationally indefensible, so is ‘speciesism’. If one ought to give equal consideration to the interests of all human beings, then, so they claim, one must on the same grounds and in the same way recognize that ‘all animals are equal’, be they human or non-human. We believe that this assimilation of ‘animal liberation’ to human liberation movements is mistaken.
