About this book

How can science teach us that animals feel no pain when our common sense observations tell us otherwise?

Bernard Rollin offers welcome insight into questions like this in his ground-breaking account of the difficult and controversial issues surrounding the use of animals. He demonstrates that the denial of animal consciousness and animal suffering is not an essential feature of a scientific approach, but rather a contingent, historical aberration that can and must be changed if science is to be both coherent and morally responsible. Widely hailed by advocates of animal welfare and scientists alike on its first appearance in 1990, The Unheeded Cry now includes an epilogue by the author describing what has changed, and what hasn't, in this use of animals in scientific research and food production.

Media reviews

"Bernard Rollin's The Unheeded Cry: Animal Consciousness, Animal Pain and Science is just what is needed to make people think seriously about why some scientists do what they do to non-human animals"
Animal Behaviour

"Being both a professor of philosophy and a professor of physiology and biophysics, Bernard Rollin is uniquely qualified to discuss the development of attitudes among scientists and to influence them."
