Eating Meat and Reading Diamond

A Gleeson

Abstract




Here is a very common philosophical opinion: being human plays no
important role in moral thinking. Call this the anti-humanist thesis. I
argue that a thirty-year old paper by Cora Diamond, ‘Eating Meat and
Eating People' (‘EMEP') can help us to see that the anti-humanist thesis
is false.
