paper 1: "All Animals are Equal" by Peter Singer and paper 2: "The Case for Animal Rights" by Tom Regan. I am writing on a position paper how Singer has better reasons than Regan.

Dec 14th, 2014

Both agree that animals (like humans) have an intrinsic value and that suffering is common to both humans and animals. Singer believes that while animals and humans have self-consciousness, humans are superior because they have more potential in continued existence than animals. Adopting a utilitarian approach, he says that animals can be killed for food.  Tom Regan's view is that animals have only a limited self-consciousness and  less interest in continued existence than humans because they cannot see or imagine themselves in the future.
