On this episode of Knowing Animals, we speak to Dr Frauke Albersmeier. Frauke is a research fellow in philosophy at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. Her research concerns metaphilosophy and ethics, including animal ethics and theories of moral progress, and she’s published a number of papers on speciesism and animal rights theory. In the episode, we talk about her 2022 paper ‘Popularizing Moral Philosophy by Acting as a Moral Expert’, which was published open access in the philosophy journal Kriterion. This provides an excellent opportunity to reflect on the role of animal ethicists and other animal studies scholars when they speak publicly – including, of course, when they speak on podcasts like this one!
