Hearts and Minds: The Controversy Over Laboratory Animals

Portada
Temple University Press, 1997 - 230 pàgines
Living in a university town that is a center of biomedical research, Groves found he could not ignore the intense opposition to research using animals. He began to analyze the formation and activities of local protest groups, attending meetings and talking to activists about their beliefs. To his surprise, many activists emphasized rational and scientific justifications for their commitment to the movement. Conversely, scientists frequently discussed their use of lab animals in the context of their attachment to pets or other animals and their concern for the environment. Groves seeks to understand these positions in connection with popular beliefs about the place of emotions in public life. Hearts and Minds looks past the placards and sound-bites to people's intellectual and psychological explanations for their positions. It discards worn generalizations and offers a nuanced portrait of people who are seriously engaged in reconciling their ethics and their behavior.
