Concepts of pain and the evolution of behavior

Dale Jamieson

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This paper defends against objections the widely accepted truism that pain is bad and therefore should be avoided or minimized. This truism seems to be in conflict with our attitudes towards, and treatment of, non-human animals. It may therefore have sweeping implications regarding our treatment of them.
