What is the difference between wild animals and humans? Humans live in a world of affection, where emotions and self moral rights matter. In the same manner as humans, wild animals live in a world like ours where they too feel emotions. So what is the correct answer to the question… Nothing in reality, wild animals are like humans.

They won’t think otherwise before killing a person. Animals who are able to surpass these barriers are able to receive our empathy and their rights, but in Jeremy Rifkin’s, “A Change of Heart About Animals,” he talks ideas about all animals should receive our empathy for great acts of the few. The individual animal receive its equal rights, not by a single entity achieving it for the mass, but by the individual must showing intelligences, emotions and feelings, and most importantly, the ability to co-exist with others; including human and other animals alike. An animal must show intelligences, the ability to communicate, solve problems, and follow simple instructions.

The Beast within Ourselves: A Struggle of Balance between Civility and the Untamed The naturalist, activist, and author Terry Tempest Williams writes, “Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from. ” Historically, the tale type of Beauty and the Beast has shied away from Williams idea that wildness is inherently human. The well-known Disney version, inspired by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont story, focuses on rescuing Beast from his primitive nature and thus, rewarding him with civilization. Recently, authors have begun to explore the nastier, less polished, side of humanity within the context of Beauty and the Beast as seen in Angela Carter’s “Tiger’s Bride.” The Beauty and the Beast fairy tales explore in various ways the relationship between human civilization and propriety on one hand and wildness and ostracism on the other hand. While the canonical western version of Beauty and the Beast idealizes civilization and demonstrates the taming influence of Beauty’s duty, self-sacrifice, and virtue, a deeper look at the tale and some of its alternative versions reveals an equally compelling glorification of the wilder side of human nature: Beauty’s acceptance of Beast represents the necessary integration of the grittier, uglier aspects of humanity in order to achieve a fully authentic human experience.

Isaiah 59:8 illustrates, "The way of peace they do not know, and there is no justice in their paths." Clearly, Scripture recognizes the existence of flaws of the behavior in man. Injustice comes in many forms. Racism, prejudice, false judgment, and stereotyping are all skewed perceptions. These distortions spill over into behaviors and human interactions, often resulting in the suffering of the innocent.
Animals carry an important role throughout human lives every day. Humans look to animals for numerous things such as: pets, a means of production, food, entertainment, experimental means, etc. Many animals carry human like traits, which raises many arguments and different positions on the subject of whether animals deserve rights while others feel that animals are simply animals, but may have certain interests that humans are obligated to respect. The issue is that many people confuse the terms animal rights and animal welfare when there is a fundamental difference between the two that revolves around the rights that humans have to use animals. There are many animal rights organizations including but not limited to: Best Friend’s Animal Society, The Humane Society of the United States, and the largest animal’s rights movement, People for Ethical
The usage of trash to create a portrait of Sebastião suggests that he is a lowlife that should be looked down upon. Although, the portrait compares him with an honorable political revolutionist and scholar. Also, Muniz includes two toilet seats in the middle of the portrait, possibly suggesting that the opinion that a human is trash and worthless is essentially shit. Furthermore, historical context comes with pattern of trash on his body. While these pieces of trash appear to represent the shadows in the original portrait, the patterns created by the trash on his skin hints at the fact that Jean Paul Marat had a skin disease.
Pattern recognition is an inherent and inborn ability of animals (humans). The target example is the notion of conceptual metaphor theory from the analogy lecture. However, the lecture does not explain why we use and enjoy metaphors? I will discuss why metaphors are wildly admired using the base example of pattern recognition. Conceptual metaphors refer to the apprehension of one idea, or theoretical realm, in terms of another.
