Abstract

The horror of natural collections

Collecting natural exhibits involves inflicting death and suffering on animals, which tends to be justified by benefits of scientific research. In any case, scientific considerations are not always the primary motive behind creating natural collections. The horror related to collecting natural exhibits is well shown by Arkady Fiedler in his books. His experiences make us aware of the ethical issues involved in the creation of natural collections, they make B. Klug’s question of whether we can notice the moral issue behind animals highly relevant in the context of such collections.
