Philosopher John Locke’s views to be discussed at CCU

Philosopher John Locke’s views on ethics and animals will be discussed at the next Brown Bag Lunch series at Coastal Carolina University on Tuesday, March 4, at 11:30 a.m. The public is invited to this free event; no ticket is required.

This is the second of three sessions in which Eva Kort, a lecturer in CCU’s Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, will host a talk on ethical issues relating to animals in modern philosophy.

This session will explore the views of 17th century British philosopher John Locke. In 1693, Locke argued against animal cruelty on the basis that animals do feel pain and therefore it is morally wrong for them to be tortured.

The final session, at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 1, will be a discussion of philosopher Immanuel Kant’s views on ethics and animals.

All events will be held in room 101 of the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts at 133 Chanticleer Drive W. on the CCU campus.
