Discussion question: Please write a short 250-500 word discussion that answer the question below:
Early in this course we saw material on the relationship between brain size and cognitive sophistication. In particular, Harry Jerison’s work on encephalization quotients reveals that many species have brains that are larger than expected to operate their bodies. Not mentioned in the lessons was that we are currently in a golden-age of comparative cognition where science has found compelling evidence that many non-human species have rich emotional lives, deliberately try to remember important information, form concepts, can learn through observation and use tools to solve problems. This course, however, presents much research that has sacrificed animals to build the knowledge we are learning about. Given our growing awareness of non-human cognition and emotional life, is it ethical to sacrifice animals for science, for medicine, for food or to test cosmetics? At what point, if any, does the cognitive and emotional sophistication of a non-human animal become an ethical limit to human exploitation and why or why not?
SEE SAMPLE (DO NOT COPY):
I personally believe that we shouldn’t sacrifice an animal’s well-being for science and other research purposes.
Professor briefly mentions that we as people and as a society are becoming more aware of animal’s human-like capabilities which include behaviors and emotions. This is the main reason why I think it is wrong to hurt animals for research. In the past, it was believed that certain animals lacked emotions and such which justified harmful experiments. In today’s age, there are many pieces of evidence that show that a variety of animal species function much like humans. For example, in my anthropology class, we watched a video about Koko the gorilla. She was able to communicate her thoughts and emotions through sign language. When she was sad, she would visibly express it. The same goes for when she was happy. This is just one of many examples that animals also have feelings like humans and should be respected like a human when it comes to these experiments.
To add on, past experiences that have been done on animals allowed us to know some of the information we know today but, I believe in these times, there are more ethical ways research can be conducted without harming animals. We have an abundance of technology and new research methods which I believe can aid research and steer it away from harming animals.
