How could we possibly find out whether it is? Do you see some similarities between this issue and the one raised in the first question? ) The basic function of perception is to inform us of what is happening in our environment so that our behaviors will be adaptive and useful: Perception without the ability to act would be useless. Of course, once perceptual abilities have evolved, they can be used for purposes other than guiding behavior. For example, we can enjoy a beautiful sunset or a great work of art without the perception causing us to do anything in particular.

My arguments in support of scientific research with animals are based on an evaluation of the benefits the research has to humans. ) Before describing the advantages of research with animals, let me point out that the use of animals in research and teaching is a special target of animal rights activists. Nicholl and Russell (1990) examined twenty-one books written by such activists and counted the number of pages devoted to concern for different uses of animals.

One of the most important figures in the development of experimental physiology was Johannes Müller, a nineteenth-century German physiologist. Müller was a forceful advocate of the application of experimental techniques to physiology. Previously, the activities of most natural scientists had been limited to observation and classification.
