Do human beings have any obligations to animals in terms of their treatment?
Weegy: I start with a basic conviction: that the abuse and purposeful harm done toanimals at the hands of human beings is morally wrong not because of anyintrinsic sense of rights that an animal possesses or because even the act of causing pain or killing [ is somehow intrinsically ethically wrong, but because of the effects that these practices have on the nature of our ethical sensibilities, of our own status as ethical agents. I see the abuse of animals at the hands of human beings and as a result of their actions as ethically wrong because of thedeformations it causes in our ethical culture and therefore take what iscommonly critiqued as an anthropocentric position.

In what follows, I want to defend this anthropocentric position bydrawing on the sociality of our ethical life and arguing that the paradigm for thelegal protection of animals needs to be grounded in a defense of our collectiveethical sensibilities and the ways that these sensibilities exert a force that shapesthe ethical personality of individuals ] (More)
