Owen’s Draft by Khai Anthropocentrism can not be justified Cells are by far the most important building blocs of any organic life. Since everyone has cells, everyone is equally valuable. Can’t prove that humans have souls, or if they did, it’s hard to prove that animals don’t have souls. Moral theory can not be built just from one distinguishing characteristic.
I personally am not sure about the objection raised. A human being is not its part, but the whole. In reducing everyone to a cell, the individuality of every life form is lost. This could be problematic for the way we constuct moral theory. Clarifying Question: Do you have sympathy for people who are anthropocentric? Suggestions: Some ideas do seem to repeat in the paragraphs. Maybe make each paragraph focus on one issue without repeating or mixing the same thoughts. Be more generous to the view that you are arguing against.
