ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER - THE ETERNAL BEING, AS IT LIVES IN US, ALSO LIVES IN EVERY ANIMAL!
«The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.»
ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER - author of «The World as Will and Representation».
Due to his philosophy of THE WILL, SCHOPENHAUER was a uncompromising advocate of animal rights, who vehemently denied any idea of a superior value of human lives. For him were humans and animals basically equivalently due to their WILL TO LIVE!
By the way; ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER lived from 22 February 1788 – 21 September 1860!
