Bradie, Michael (2012) The Moral Lives of Animals. In:  Seventh Quadrennial Fellows Conference of the Center for Philosophy of Science (12-14 June 2012; Mugla, Turkey).
Discussions of the moral status of animals typically address the key questions from an anthropocentric point of view. An alternative approach adopts a non-anthropocentric perspective. In this paper, I explore the theoretical and experimental results which make this approach plausible and address two key questions:  to what extent is it proper to speak of the moral lives of non-human animals?  How might we empirically establish that animals lead moral lives?
