Dr. Pierce holds a position of Faculty Associate at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Center for Bioethics and Humanities. Working in bioethics, she is the author or co-author of Morality Play: Case Studies in Ethics, Contemporary Bioethics: A Reader With Cases, Wild Justice: The Moral Lives of Animals. It's this last title– Moral Lives– that we asked Dr. Pierce to talk with us about. What does it say about human morality and what does it mean for the study of it that many animals demonstrate behaviors that can only be described with words like "justice", "fairness", and "altruism"?
