The Psychology of Speciesism

Speaker: Lucius Caviola, Executive Director Effective Altruism Foundation
Time: Saturday, 11:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Room: H1058

Surprisingly, the concept of speciesism has been neglected in psychology so far. In this talk, Lucius will present a number of recently conducted psychological studies investigating the psychological construct of speciesism. The studies suggest that speciesism is an accurately measurable, relatively stable psychological attitude with high interpersonal differences, and that it goes along with a cluster of other moral attitudes.
