Christine Korsgaard, a professor of philosophy at Harvard University, will deliver a lecture, "Are Human Beings More Important than the Other Animals?" on Tuesday, March 29, at 4 p.m. in 113A Lowder Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

Korsgaard is among the most distinguished and influential Kantian philosophers of the current era. She is also keenly interested in the moral standing of animals and the nature of human relations to them. Korsgaard is the author of "Self-Constitution: Identity and Integrity and the Sources of Normativity,” an expanded version of her Tanner Lectures of 1992. In addition, she has published several collections of essays and a number of articles. She has received honorary degrees from the University of Illinois and the University of Gronigen.

The lecture will be filmed by the Auburn University Media Group. For on-campus use of a DVD of Korsgaard’s lecture, contact Gerard Elfstrom at
