Abstract

The author suggests that "to significantly advance our understand-ing of humane behavior and to instill or enhance its presence in children, we need to go “back to the drawing board” and ask somenew questions about kindness toward animals and use some different, and more exploratory, sociological methods to study an unusual group of subjects."
