Last night during a debate at Wageningen University (the debate was part of my guest lectureship at Wageningen University) an economist equated the moral status of animals to the moral status of plants.
None of the other debaters (an ethicist, a food scientist, a philosopher and a cosmetic surgeon) objected to this equation.
The debate was chaired by me and I have to admit that I was surprised by this equation.
