Richard Brown is a philosopher at CUNY. In Sentientist Conversations we discuss “what’s real?” and “what matters?” Sentientism is “evidence, reason and compassion for all sentient beings.”
“Imagining a better future through our everyday decisions” – Podcaster and academic Claudia Hirtenfelder – New Sentientist Conversation
“Imagining a better future through our everyday decisions.” In this video, Jamie talks to the host of The Animal Turn Podcast and PhD Candidate in Geography at Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada, Claudia Hirtenfelder.We talk about cycling 6,000km across Asia using vegan power! and Claudia’s journey from Christianity to atheism. We discuss how to temper our rationality with humility and by considering diverse perspectives and how to temper our focus on the value of individual sentients with a recognition of social factors.
We talk about Graham’s Christian upbringing (and singing), his turn to a naturalistic, Sentientist ethics, ending animal farming and exploitation and the potential for a Deutschian, Star Trek future for all sentients.
