A powerful current of opinion in charge exists to preach the supremacy of the man on the rest of the animal species in fields like intelligence, conscience and empathy. We did not talk about the objectively quantitative fact, but to the stubborn defense of which certain caracterstas are own solely of the human beings. In fact, the difference of intelligence or conscience of one same one is a simple cuantitiva question, nonqualitative.
