ESSAY ON: Social Construction in Non-Human Animals and Its Significance to Animal Liberation Arguments

Number of Pages 4

This research paper: This is a 4 page paper discussing social construction in non-human animals and its significance in animal liberation discourse. Research within the past several decades has led to many studies which have concluded that animals, and especially primates, have social constructions and social learning behaviors which are similar to that of humans. Through the study of social construction in animals, primates, rats, and guppies among many other species have shown social learning behavior such as family sharing, food foraging instruction, and many other cognitive behavior learning such as induced motivation, matched dependent behavior and emulation of those within their social group among other constructs. In addition to the social constructs which have been found to exist throughout the animal kingdom, researchers and animal activists discuss the importance of letting the social behavior of animals become well known as their “human-like” social constructs may make people realize the importance of liberating those animals held in captivity. Animals activists argue that not only do animals feel pain just as humans do but they also lead productive social lives, previously considered to exist only within humans. Once this has been successfully presented, animals should have the same social rights given to humans in addition to the protection of their natural environments. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
