PHIL 279 Philosophy of Hunting

Older than humanity’s ‘oldest profession,’ hunting is a philosophically weighty practice that contemporary societies increasingly struggle to understand. This course critically examines the ethical, experiential, conceptual, environmental and socio-political status of hunting, including topics such as animal rights, fair chase, environmentalism, subsistence vs. trophy hunting, human nature, predation, death, gender, race, religion and class.
