Dr. Tuttle has a Masters Degree in humanities and a Ph.D in the Philosophy of Education. He is the co-founder of the Circle of Compassion Ministry, and a recipient of the Peace Abbey’s Courage of Conscience Award. Will appeals to the inherent wisdom and compassion in all humans, which he suggests is brutally suppressed by our culture’s relentless and routine commodification and killing of other animals.
