Jerry Friedman

Was Darwin an Animal Advocate?

To discuss how Darwin's ideas changed the place of humans from above to inside the animal kingdom; Darwin's personal vs. scientific views on the subject; the backlash against it; and the consequences to non-human animals.

About Jerry Friedman:

Former veterinary student, now a (non-practicing) lawyer. I've saturated myself in philosophy and ethics. I've been on the board of directors at In Defense of Animals, the National Lawyers Guild (Los Angeles chapter), Cannon River STEM School, and I'm presently the president of the Animal Care Foundation. I'm published in the American Journal of Bioethics.
