Can Animals Be Persons? - 11/22/2012
Here’s a provocative article on animal rights and the definition of “personhood”: When Does an Animal Count as a Person? As one of the quoted experts points out, defining “person” in a way that includes some animals has pitfalls, mainly the hazard that the definition would exclude some human beings (as, in fact, bioethicist and animal rights radical Peter Singer deliberately does, if I understand him accurately). Can we have "degrees" of "personhood," so that dolphins and chimps can be included on a sort of sliding scale? This weekend I’ll be attending the Darkover Grand Council, as usual. Happy Thanksgiving to all! Margaret L. Carter Carter's Crypt http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping rowena cherry
