Abstract

In this article, Professor Georges Chapouthier describes the three main concepts that have, in the past and today, defined the relationship of human beings towards animals: animals perceived as human beings, animals regarded as objects and animals understood as sentient beings. The only philosophical stance that is sustainable today is to consider animals as sentient beings that are related to human beings, but not totally identical to them. The recognition of sensitivity in animals leads to mankind’s obligation to grant them some fundamental rights on a philosophical and juridical level.
