Description

Would Aristotle be vegan? While Peter Singer is well known for his arguments for the moral status for animals, it is not the only view on animal welfare. Virtue Ethicists - who's views date all the way back to Aristotle - have much to say on the topic. Unlike other ethical theories, virtue ethicists care about the character and feelings of a person to determine what a right action is. So that begs the question, using Aristotle's system of ethics, would being Vegan be considered right?
