The History of Human-Animal Interaction - Prehistoric Times, Humans Domesticate Animals, Ancient Cultures And Religions, The Medieval Period, The Age Of Enlightenment And The Useof Vivisection


At the heart of the animal rights debate is the issue of how humans and animals should interact with each other. Are animals a natural resource for humans to use as they choose? Or are animals free beings with the right to live their lives without human interference? Is there an acceptable compromise somewhere in between? People answer these questions differently depending on their cultural practices, religious and ethical beliefs, and everyday experiences with animals. To understand how the debate has evolved over the centuries, it is necessary to examine history and see how the human-animal relationship developed and changed over time.
