Dale Jamieson

Dale is Professor of Environmental Studies and Philosophy at New York University, a scholar of environmental ethics and animal rights, and an analyst of climate change discourse. He also serves as a faculty affiliate for the NYU School of Law and as director of NYU’s Animal Studies Initiative. In addition to his affiliation with the NYU Departments of Environmental Studies and Philosophy, Dale also holds positions at The Dickson Poon School of Law and at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Australia.

Dale is the author of “Animal Liberation is an Environmental Ethic”, Co-editor with Marc Bekoff of “Readings in Animal Cognition”, “Morality’s Progress: Essays on Humans, Other Animals, and the Rest of Nature”, “Ethics and the Environment: An Introduction”, “Reason in a Dark Time” and (with Bonnie Nadzam) “Love in the Anthropocene”.

Dale seems to have a broadly sentiocentric moral scope but is also open to considering agency as an additional moral qualifier as part of a pluralistic approach. He has said “The animals… that are supposed to have had happy lives probably did not have happy lives and were almost certainly not painlessly killed.” He seems to have a naturalistic worldview.
