    Phil. Ethics Animal Rights The question of animal rights is one that people have been debating heavily since the sixties. In the beginning it was thought that animals had no intelligence what so ever therefore we have no responsibilities towards them. Traditional philosophers, such as Aquinas, Descartes, Malebranche, and Kant, defended the view that our obligations toward animals are only indirect. For these philosophers, animals are unconscious biological organisms which operate by brute instin...

  • Safe After Animal Experimentation
    775 words
    The common belief is that animal testing has accelerated science and medicine a great deal, but the truth is simple: animal experimentation has not cured a single disease. People have been misled into believing that animal experimentation is responsible for many "miracle cures" and "medical breakthroughs" for decades. The reason is very straightforward: animals differ from humans greatly-too much to be able to have accurate results from experiments. The only progress with infectious disease made...
  • Moral Correctness Regarding Animal Rights
    3,832 words

  • Animals On Fur Farms
    1,155 words
    Fur is Death "Every year, the fur industry is responsible for the miserable lives and painful deaths of nearly 40 million animals.

  • Humans And Animal Rights
    2,144 words
    This assertion is saying that there are differences between animals and humans and because of those differences we should have different rights. Humans already have more rights than animals and it is ridiculous how no one even recognizes it. For example, humans go hunting all the time and don t even think twice about it. What I am saying is, on the news you never hear about a deer killing a hunter because it just doesn t happen. It is not the deer's nature to kill a human when we have done nothi...
  • Attributable In Humans To Pain
    1,874 words
    Animal rights is a catchphrase akin to human rights. It involves, however, a few pitfalls. First, animals exist only as a concept. Otherwise, they are cuddly cats, curly dogs, cute monkeys. A rat and a puppy are both animals but our emotional reaction to them is so different that we cannot really lump them together. Moreover: what rights are we talking about? The right to life? The right to be free of pain? The right to food? Except the right to free speech - all the other rights could be releva...

    3,818 words

Few people, though, exclaim, "Oh, my specialized nerve endings!" upon stubbing their toes. More often, people vocalize how and what they are feeling when they are in "pain" from stubbing their toes. For all pain, although sharing the commonality of being caused...
