THE NAZI TREATMENT OF THE JEWS III

Sommers does not think that this reclassification of persons as nonpersons does not and will not happen in any moral philosophy which is based on feeling rather than on rationality.  

Thus he says that “A people steeped in the sentimentalist moral philosophy [such as that of Locke, Hume, or Mill] regards all sentient beings [those capable of feeling and sensation, or pleasure and pain] as moral patients.” [as deserving of moral consideration.]  And “such a people would view an openly cruel leader [like Hitler] as unacceptably immoral.”
