The Ethics of Meat-Eating update

The NYT has posted the finalists for the essay contest I mentioned in an earlier post. Brian Leiter has some interesting comments here. I agree with him with respect to the “partisan (and mostly intellectually lightweight) panel” of judges. None of the so-called defenses selected are very robust. In fact, they come across as almost apologetic.  I disagree with Leiter about it being an unimportant topic for philosophical debate, however. I just don’t think we have the makings of a robust debate in the NYT. Pity.
