    Morals, Reason, and Animals.S. F. Sapontzis - 1987 - Temple University Press.
    This book criticizes the common belief that we are entitled to exploit animals for our benefit because they are not as rational as people.

    On Justifying the Exploitation of Animals in Research.S. F. Sapontzis - 1988 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 13 (2):177-196.
    In research employing animals we commonly do things to them which would be grossly immoral to do to humans. This paper discusses three possible justifications for so treating animals: (a) it is violating the autonomy of rational beings which makes actions immoral, and animals are not autonomous; (b) due to our participation in the human community, we have special obligations to humans that we do not have to animals; and (c) human life is morally more worthy than animal life. The (...)

Just as Alexander started to make his demand, Barney Gleason, a bank customer, rushed up to East’s window, shoved (...)
