Animal pain and human pleasure: ethical dilemmas outside the classroom

Harnad, Stevan (2014) Animal pain and human pleasure: ethical dilemmas outside the classroom London School of Economics LSE Impact Blog, Summer Issue

Record type: Article


For the 2014 worldwide March Against Slaughterhouses, Stevan Harnad combines lessons from cognitive science and ethics in order to lay bare the widespread problem of the human treatment of animals. Ethics and law are predicated on the existence of feeling and as such reducing and eventually abolishing gratuitous suffering that humans are inflicting on animals is hence one of the most urgent moral imperatives of our age.
