Cavell’s 2006 Kenan Lecture in Ethics

Share

In 2006, Cavell delivered the annual Kenan Distinguished Lecture in Ethics at Duke University. The title of his talk was “Thinking About and Eating Animals: Reflections on Coetzee’s The Lives of Animals,” a version of which has since appeared in print as “Companionable Thinking” in Alice Crary’s edited volume, Wittgenstein and the Moral Life: Essays in Honor of Cora Diamond, and then later in Cary Wolfe’s edited collection, Philosophy and Animal Life.

The video of this lecture is available from Duke University as a free download. The file is large: 359 MB. To begin downloading it from a server at Duke, click here (Windows users should right-click and select “Save Target As…”).
