For instance, though he views the Great Ape Project as an admirable enterprise, he laments both the reasoning behind the scheme and its possible implications: "To put it very telegraphically, great apes possess the capacities that we possess, but in diminished form, so we end up ethically recognizing them not because of their wonder and uniqueness, not because of their difference, but because they are inferior versions of ourselves, in which case the ethical humanism that was the problem from the outset simply gets reinforced and reproduced on another level" (Wolfe 2003, 192).
In 1993, Paola Cavalieri and I founded The Great Ape Project, an organization dedicated to the idea of recognizing that great apes have a moral status befitting their nature as self-aware beings who are capable of thought and have rich and deep emotional lives.
The Great Ape Project's directors, Peter Singer, an ethicist based at Princeton University, and Paola Cavalieri, an Italian philosopher, regard apes as part of a "community of equals" with humans.
in the struggle for animals' fights and in defense of our evolutionary comrades, which will doubtless go down in the history of humanity," says Pedro Pozas, the director of the Great Ape Project in Spain.
The Spanish Parliament's resolution amounts to an endorsement of the Great Ape Project, which was founded in 1993 to break down barriers between human and nonhuman animals.
The Great Ape Project is fighting to ban experimentation on chimpanzees and gorillas.
One particularly strong essay ("The Great Ape Project," co-authored with Paola Cavalieri) marshals evidence of the existence of self-awareness (and thus an ability not only to feel pain but to suffer) in chimpanzees and other animals.
The Great Ape Project, the most important organization focusing on the rights of simians, is characteristic of the speciesist nature of the AMG.
Apes have the added benefit that they look like us, too, which is probably why the Great Ape Project and others have gotten as far as they have in persuading society to re-think our relationship with them.
To give an extreme example of this type of ideology, I shall rehearse, in a few words, the debate which arose about fifteen years ago and which you may have heard about: the famous debate initiated by Peter Singer, the Australian philosopher and advocate of deep ecology, the debate surrounding the Great Ape Project. I simply want to say to you that this debate, which had a great deal of response in the English-speaking world, is still eliciting a response here in France and is finding defenders, notably amongst the ecologists, this debate is terrifying.
In an accurate review of Jonathan Marks's loosely argued What It Means to Be 98% Chimpanzee, Micaela di Leonardo passes on to readers the misleading impression that the Great Ape Project uses the genetic similarities between humans and apes to argue for "human rights" for apes, "frequently to the detriment of the impoverished African and Southeast Asian residents of ape homelands" ["Too Much Monkey Business," July 8].
