S&F in Philosophy Now: The Moral Worth of Animals

The following cartoon accompanied the print version of Samuel Kaldas’s article Descartes vs. Cudworth on The Moral Worth of Animals (Philosophy Now, Issue 108). In this article, the writer compares two views on the nature of animals and their implications for our moral responsibility towards them. It’s interesting to compare Descartes views – disturbing to many today – to those of his contemporary Cudworth, who held surprisingly modern views for his time.

S&F: Lachesis

The following is very loosely based on the recent research in telomeres, aging & disease. I took a bit of a left turn into Greek mythology. Everyone needs more Greek mythology in their life.

S&F Nanoparticles

The following S&F cartoon was created for The Potent, a Canadian environmental news and media blog. It’s surprisingly difficult to find consistent information about the impact of nanoparticles on human/environmental health, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we read more about them in the future.
