Title: Carrie Figdor (Iowa)
Title: Non-anthropocentric psychology and moral status: the psychological  
speciesism of humanism

Abstract: Humanists argue for assigning the highest moral status to all  
humans over any non-humans directly or indirectly on the basis of human  
cognitive abilities. They may also claim that humanism is the strongest  
position from which to combat racism, sexism, and other forms of  
within-species discrimination. I argue that empirical discoveries of  
cognitive abilities throughout nature reveal that humanism relies on an  
unjustified psychological speciesism that condones discrimination.
