Most of the world is nonhuman and everything we do affects them, and there are thousands of times more of them than there are of us. If we have rights and we’re in the minority, shouldn’t animals as well? On the next episode of Why?, we’ll dive into the world of animal ethics, exploring the legal, political, and moral implications of acknowledging that animals suffer.

Jeff Sebo is a Clinical Associate Professor of Environmental Studies, and Affiliated Professor of Bioethics, Medical Ethics, Philosophy, and Law at New York University. He is the author, most recently, of Saving Animals, Saving Ourselves.
