Angela Bischof

Angela Bischof is a third-year PhD student in the Philosophy department. She holds a BA in Philosophy and a BA in Psychology from New Mexico State University. Her research concerns the moral standing of nonhuman animals. Specifically, she is focused on the cognitive abilities important for morality and whether or not animals have any of these abilities. This research approach led Angela to examine the relationship between rationality and morality. By examining the intersection of animal psychology, what it means to be moral, and what it means to be rational, she hopes to answer the following questions: “To what extent are animals worthy of moral consideration?” and “Are animals ever capable of acting morally?”
