Abstract:
In his Of the Wisdom of the Ancients, Francis Bacon once remarked that
―Man, if we look at final causes, may be regarded as the centre of the world ...
for the whole world works together in the service of man... . All things seem to
be going about man‘s business and not their own.‖ The centrality of the human
animal—that Cartesian thinking being, the rational animal, the measure of all
things, and so on—has been with us for some time now because we believe
ourselves to be homo specialis. We believe ourselves to be that special being
made either in the image of some external God or at the pinnacle of
evolutionary development because we are endowed with the power of
reasoning. As such a being, we are capable of contemplating our personal
deaths, constructing moralities, and imagining ourselves into the future. We
are in many ways exceptional creatures. But where is the heart of this special
creature?
