Chimpanzee Rights: The View from Philosophers

The court battle for chimpanzee personhood in the United States has continued since 2012. A group of seventeen philosophers are attempting to intervene in these legal proceedings by explaining how the judgements denying chimpanzee personhood up to this point have been confused. Their argument has been extended into a book, Chimpanzee Rights: The Philosophers’ Brief. Two of the co-authors, Drs. Kristin Andrews and Letitia Meynell will be joined by others to give a presentation on issues of chimpanzee rights and consideration as persons.
