Precis 6 The thought of cruelty to animals is in some minds, more harmful to humans than the actually animal. Absurd? Yes. This idea is clearly stated that because animals have no moral of importance, the human-caused cruelty is far more of a consequence which overall makes the cruelty wrongful. A legal scholar by the name of Louis Schwartz stated that the concern with animal cruelty is that although animals are being slaughtered for food, the effects that has on humans creates ultimate sympathy for the slaughtered animals. Does this still sound insane? I agree that it does. More absurdly, Immanuel Kant (a philosopher) states that we have no moral obligation towards animals. The ultimate morality principle that applies only to humans, also known as the Categorical Imperative, discards any responsibilities for animals. Kant claims that animals are not self-conscious and are ultimately set up for death due to humans. Kant claims that humans predetermine the life of animals, which ultimately leads to Kant’s beliefs of right and wrong.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
