Beka Jalagania is a doctoral student at the chair of Practical Philosophy. In 2016 he completed his Master’s degree in Philosophy at the University of Tartu where he defended his Master’s thesis on the legal rights for animals. In his PhD thesis, he addresses questions concerning the ethics of wild animal suffering. The thesis provides a comprehensive analysis of the view, called the Laissez-faire Intuition, that we are not required to assist wild animals. In contrast to this view, the thesis makes the case for assisting wild animals in their struggle to live lives free from suffering and provides a theoretical ground for an ethically justified intervention in nature.
