Although, exists many reasons to be against animal testing, or no less than keeping them in under moral and decent conditions while they are in captivity. Indeed, experimenting with animals has proved in many cases that is a cruel practice, though the use of these beings is unnecessary due to the lack of reliability, the results of the experiments might not be trustworthy when is going to be applied to humans, the pain that is inflicted on animals is just cruel and inhumane. Nevertheless, it cannot be avoided the last test in the human being, with all the precautions and respect that we deserve. In this current society, the equitable solution is to adopt an intermediate position to consider the use of animals trough trials as necessary to conform to the moral imperative to heal and prevent human diseases, but considering ways to replace, reduce their number and decrease their suffering. The solution that is proposed is work in conjunction trying to avoid experiments with animals as much as possible; the experiments can be done with alternative methods, avoiding pain and suffer as a result.
But because humans desire power, there is always a reason to break the contract, despite the logic behind this law and the natural need to preserve our rights. Other natural laws must come into play in order to preserve this third law. Ryan states that, “Hobbesian man is obliged to keep his agreements unless it is intolerably dangerous to do so,” (Ryan, 1996). Hobbes writes that humans must make agreements and must follow them, not only because they see some advantage in them, but unless and until a threat comes, must they follow
Another social contract from Locke is the Law of Nature. Locke’s view on this was that all decisions are based on morality. That it was God’s commands that they should
According to Galen Strawson, moral responsibility to punish some of us with eternal torment (hell) and rewards others with eternal bliss (heaven). I am going to argue that we cannot be morally responsible for our actions which is also Strawson’s argument. He has a basic argument that claims you perform the action that you perform because of the way you are, in particular mental respects. To be truly morally responsible for your action, you must be truly morally responsible for your character, personality, and motivational structure or in other words, who you are. We are born with determined predispositions that we are not responsible for and we are exposed to certain influences that we are not responsible for.
Redmayne plays the character of Stephen Hawking very well. He is able to mimic the traits and posture of Hawking’s condition suffering a motor neuron disease. Another important point to note related to the plot and characters imaging is the directors’ decision to add or omit certain characters from the books to the screenplay versions. They often do this to overcome books with first person point of views. In order to be able to visualize the main characters’ story, the films need helps from already existing characters or new characters.
To rightfully evolve governance, we must look back on several ideas of jurisprudence that will celebrate diversity and recognize universal law should promote human behaviors that support the ecosystem. The Gaia theory imposes the idea of Earth being a single organism in itself which regulates its own environment and any interruptions to its cycles will cause the devastation of natural Earth. Humanity must reconsider its attempt to separate itself from the natural world and respect the environment and avoid waste or excess. It is importance we recognize or belonging to the ecosystem and become a universal network in order to preserve and protect the planet with depend on for
The Animal Bill of Rights is meant to prevent the exploitation of animals and refute the justification that experimentation makes animal cruelty moral. Humans are ones who exploited animals, so humans have an obligation to free them from the unnecessary pain caused by exploiting them. Because of their lack of ability to defend themselves against human evil, the Animal Bill of Rights grants animals to be protected and
They cannot fight for themselves. It is therefore our social and environmental responsibility and our duty to fight this ongoing battle for them. We need to stop hiding pictures on social media of animal abuse, just because it does not look nice. Shutting down these sites does not shut down the problem. We need to rise above our own interests and stop pretending that the problem does not exist.
To this line, Richard Powers “situates his novel at the intersection of the posthumanist and humanist discourses, and probes the posthuman approach to the mind-body problem” (Campbell, 2004, p. 1). Taking on Hayles’s and Miranda Campbell’s hints above, this paper aims to probe the intersection between posthuman and human, particularly the unbridgeable differences between artificial and intelligence, as
By saying that men cannot exist in nature by restraining his passions, Hume creates an image of a civilized society, one in which we coexist to combat the issue of scarcity by controlling our passions. Granted, it is obvious that scarcity can never be completely resolved, but it can be alleviated within society when generations upon generations are taught about this aforementioned rule. In nature, scarcity is inherent and fosters competition between all living beings, but the distinction between humans and animals can be drawn here. Unlike humans, animals are not capable of processing rational thought and complex ideas, but the trade-off is for natural human ability to survive. Individually, we have none of it.
