Has a Frog a Soul?

Has a Frog a Soul? by Thomas Henry Huxley
By: (1825-1895)

In "Has a Frog a Soul?" Thomas Henry Huxley explores the complex question of whether animals possess a soul or consciousness similar to humans. Huxley delves into various scientific experiments and philosophical arguments to dissect this age-old debate, providing a thought-provoking analysis that challenges readers to consider the ethical implications of how we treat animals.

Throughout the book, Huxley engages readers with his sharp wit and logical reasoning, making a compelling case for why we should reconsider our views on animal intelligence and emotions. His writing is clear and concise, making even complex scientific concepts accessible to a general audience.

While some may find Huxley's arguments controversial or disquieting, his insights force us to confront our assumptions about the nature of consciousness and our place in the natural world. "Has a Frog a Soul?" is a timely and important read for anyone interested in the intersection of science, ethics, and philosophy.

Book Description:

Thomas Huxley, known as “Darwin’s Bulldog” for his championing and development of Darwinism, was perhaps the most important Victorian biologist after Darwin himself. This speech to the Metaphysical Society in 1870 is one of Huxley’s best known texts outside the sphere of his specialism, and remains read today by students of philosophy. In it, Huxley argues from the results of vivisection to metaphysics.
