Example text

Wherein, precisely, lies the fallacy?  So, for example, it would certainly be logically fallacious to attribute cleverness to Tuesday or randiness to a theorem.  Indeed, built into animal research is a presupposition of anthropomorphism, the assumption that many human traits are portrayed in some relevant fashion in animals.  And how can the common sense of science do this when whole segments of scientific research, while denying the tenability of mentalistic attribution to animals, must in fact presuppose it in order to do their work?

Movements promoting 'wellness', preventive medicine (which always had a low status in Page 17 scientific medicine), holistic medicine, diet and exercise, Eastern medicine, and so on are all clear signals that large portions of society are growing tired of reductionist, value­free, scientific medicine.  And so the twentieth century has witnessed the horrors of a medical science unfettered by moral considerations: Auschwitz, Willowbrook,12 and indigents, derelicts, prisoners, and the insane routinely used for experiments without their consent, and so on, until common sense called a halt to unchecked 'freedom of enquiry', and society demanded codified moral constraints on human research, and, increasingly, animal research, as we shall see.

It suggests also that those of us who believe that we have moral obligations to animals have set ourselves an impossible task, since we cannot even begin to enumerate those obligations if what matters to an animal must forever remain a closed book to us. Page 23 2 Animal Consciousness as an Object of Study Compartmentalization and Animal Consciousness in Scientific Ideology There is, perhaps, no area in which compartmentalization on the part of scientists is more evident than that of animal consciousness, awareness, and mental states.
