One Response to “Arguments in Psychology.”

  1. I think that I would like to write on the differential weightings of human and animal participants in considerations of ethical approval. I would intend to focus on the inequalities of preference due to acquaintance, affection and relatedness for both human and animal participants and the ability to provide consent. I would include the cost benefit analysis as an example of the sometimes questionable benefits derived from substantial (to those concerned) costs. I am generally coming from the perspective of awareness; that in allowing animal experimentation we do not do so ignorantly but are fully aware of the choices we are making. I hope that this would be a suitable subject for contribution and would love to hear any opinions regarding animal experimentation which I could address in my submission.
