Abstrakt

The study examines ethical considerations concerning the use of animals in the fur industry. The study focuses on whether the use of animals is ethically justifiable in a western context. Material from the company Copenhagen Fur and the nongovernmental organization Anima will be used. Our main problem deals with which ethical aspects were expressed in their arguments, and how these ethical problems could be discussed using acknowledged ethical theories. We can conclude that the ethical theories were useful to enlighten the ethical problems that occurred in both arguments. Copenhagen Fur’s arguments had elements that resembled deonthological thinking. Anima on the other hand primarily had utilitarian thoughts in their arguments. There is no final answer to the discussion about whether the use of animals in the fur industry is ethically justifiable. This problem is a complex discussion with many different views.
