Your post brings up a good point – in terms of the traditional view of personhood, it is believed that humans have a higher order capacity to think and feel. One example in modern philosophy of this is that some philosophers argue that, while animals experience pain, they don’t have a first person awareness of being harmed like humans do. They go on to argue that animals don’t associate harm with pain because animals are not moral creatures. They simply don’t have a high enough complexity to make moral decisions – which is one of the distinguishing features of personhood. What do you think of this line of reason? Do you agree?
