Marder: Is it ethical to eat plants?

2014 11 01 ethical eating marder

Michael Marder’s work on the philosophy of plant being necessarily raises the question of ethical eating. The Irish Times promotes Marder’s new book, The Philosopher’s Plant, and dips a toe into the question in a recent interview.

“… sentience as a criterion is insufficient, and the notion of respect is inevitable in any postulation of an ethical diet,” says Marder.
