What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
Many now seem persuaded that the optimal diet on health, environmental and ethical grounds is vegan, even if only a small minority have actually given up all animal proteins. Philosopher and 'ethicovore' Julian Baggini will argue that although we ought to change our diets radically, vegan or vegetarian options are not the most ethical, sustainable or healthy. This is not a reassuring conclusion, however, since he also argues that the typical western omnivore falls even shorter on all three grounds. He will outline what truly ethical omnivery requires and why.
He is the author, co-author and/or editor of over 20 books, most recently “The great guide: what David Hume can teach us about being human and living well” (2021). His writing can also be found in publications such as The Times, The Guardian, Financial Times and the New Statesman. Dr Baggini is also Academic Director of the Royal Institute of Philosophy (UK) and hosts the podcasts, “Thinking hard and slow” and “Microphilosophy”.
