Examination of the question of what sorts of beings matter morally in their own right and how much they matter. While the paradigm bearers of moral status are persons, the course considers competing ways of thinking about the possible moral status of human nonpersons, nonhuman persons, great apes, dolphins, other sentient animals, nonsentient lifeforms, the environment, future people, and advanced forms of artificial intelligence.
