Debate on human distinctiveness continues in Morgenbladet

The book chapter excerpt by professor in biology Dag Hessen, based on his contribution to Hvem er villest i landet her? Råskap mot dyr og natur i antropocen, menneskets tidsalder [Who is wildest in this country here? Brutality towards animals and nature in the Anthropocene, the age of Man], sparked debate in the Norwegian weekly Morgenbladet last week, when professor in theology Knut Alfsvåg responded to Hessen with a letter to the editor. This week, in Morgenbladet June 19-25, Hessen replies with a letter to the editor entitled "Mennesker og dyr: like eller likere?" [Humans and animals: Alike, or more alike?].
