Abstract

I critique Peter Singer’s view that equality across species is a natural extension of equality. Singer presents one minor and two major arguments.

The second is that it follows from a conception that is behind the principle of equality, namely the moral “point of view of the universe.” The minor argument is a theory of the altruistic character and expanding circles of ethics
