Tom Regan: A Celebration

The year 2011 marks the 35th anniversary of the publication of Tom Regan's note, "McCloskey on Why Animals Cannot Have Rights" (Philosophical Quarterly, 1976). This brief article contained the seeds of what would become a controversial, influential, and widely discussed book, The Case for Animal Rights. To mark the occasion, the NC State Philosophy and Religious Studies Department is joining with the College of Humanities and Social Sciences to host a workshop on Regan's philosophy of animal rights. All meetings will be held at NC State U. between 9:00 am - 3:30 pm on April 15 and 16, 2011.
