Freeman, Carrie P. (2019) Taking exception to human exceptionalism. Animal Sentience 23(32)
Colin A. Chapman and Michael A. Huffman, Why do we want to think humans are different?
Chapman & Huffman refute common claims used to justify human species distinctions, and they critique the animal cruelty that has resulted from this privileged status. I raise related questions for further study of the roots of human exceptionalism and about whether aspiring to be more like our fellow animals might be part of the solution.
