Leonardo da Vinci was many things: an artist, inventor, botanist, engineer, architect, historian, geologist, and more. But was “vegan” amongst the many titles of this quintessential renaissance man? This video delves into da Vinci’s lesser-known contributions to the fields of animal rights and ethical vegetarianism (which we today call “veganism). You’ll hear some powerful quotes outlining his moral and ethical stance on what he sees as humanity’s perverse sense of entitlement over animals.
