Earlier this summer, I was interviewed by Matt Fradd of the Pints with Aquinas Podcast and YouTube channel, and the video was released on YouTube last week. I was excited (as always) to discuss the problem of animal suffering with Matt, but especially because I am a fan of Pints with Aquinas.
In the episode, I mainly discussed the answers to the problem of animal suffering that are found in my book, Thomism and the Problem of Animal Suffering. Matt and I also tried to break down some of my answers to make them easier to understand for non-philosophically trained people.
Like my other interviews, although our discussion was over an hour long, I was only able to provide brief responses. So, if you find this topic interesting and want to dive deeper into Christian solutions to the problem, here are links to some of my favorite books on the topic:
- Nature Red in Tooth and Claw by Michael J. Murray
- The Problem of Animal Pain by Trent Dougherty
- Thomism and the Problem of Animal Suffering by B. Kyle Keltz
