Tallis argues that the rise of biologism has serious consequences and demonstrates that, by denying human uniqueness and minimizing the differences between humans and their nearest animal kin, it misrepresents what we are, offering a grotesquely simplified and degrading account of humanity. He suggests that seeing ourselves as animals may lead us to find reasons for treating others as less than human.
