7. Meat

Review class discussion points

Required readings for this week: Robertson: Ch. 12

Additional assignments for this week:

Read the Meat Ethics Kit and review at least one resource listed in it. Would you consider becoming vegetarian or vegan? How could you make those steps manageable so you might make some commitment to eating less meat? What might be your motivators – are you concerned with the cruelty to animals, the environmental damage, or the personal health consequences of eating meat? What might be your immaterial rewards that would help you make the transition?
