Nonhumans Are Smart
« on: September 12, 2018, 12:17:18 PM »
Another article regarding nonhuman intelligence was published this week. Many activists repost such items and often refer to this topic. That is despite that they do recognize themselves that intelligence should in no way be a factor determining moral status. They probably do so, hoping that if humans hear that nonhumans are actually very smart, they’ll change their stance regarding their moral status. However, as we explain in the following post, it is very naïve to hope that facts will be able to refute speciesism, especially considering how little some of the greatest conceptual revolutions in human history have accomplished in placing humanity in a more reasonable place.
