Kuperus, Gerard (2018) Continuum and temporality. Animal Sentience 20(15)
David M. Peña-Guzmán, Can nonhuman animals commit suicide?
I fully support the continuum proposed in the target article and argue along the same lines that we should be suspicious of drawing any strict borders between human and non-human animals. Since we can say very little with absolute certainty about human intentions regarding suicide, we have no certainty about the intentions of non-human animals. Although I am very sympathetic to Peña-Guzmán’s overall argument, I suggest that time could be taken into consideration as well.
