Intelligence Squared: Animals Should Be Off the Menu

Listen to Intelligence Squared: Animals Should Be Off the Menu

Intelligence Squared’s 2012 series of debates kicks off with a look at the ethics of eating meat. Six speakers are divided into two teams for lively and insightful arguments for and against the proposition, ‘Animals Should Be Off the Menu’.

Speaking for the proposition are Peter Singer, Philip Wollen and Veronica Ridge; against it, Adrian Richardson, Fiona Chambers and Bruce McGregor. Their cases are followed by questions from the floor and finally, the audience vote.

For analysis of the event – including a transcript of audience vote results – read our article covering the debate.
