The next frontier: Moral heuristics and the treatment of animals

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (4):554-555 (2005)
Abstract
Heuristics provide insight into the inconsistencies that characterize thinking related to the use of nonhuman animals. We examine paradoxes in judgments and policy related to the treatment of animals in science from a moral intuition perspective. Sunstein's ideas are consistent with a model of animal-related ethical evaluation we developed twenty-five years ago and which appear readily formulated as moral heuristics.
