Question #139384
you are walking in a jungle with your friend Gilbert Ryle and you found a male feral child that has been raised by wolves. Ryle asked you how that child will identify himself. How will you answer in terms that will satisfy your friend?
Expert's answer

The child will identify himself as a "homo ferus" human species, which translates to a wild man or wild child. The child is human because he was born of a man and has the same physical and biological characteristics. However, he is of a different species because he has wild or animal-like behavioral features determined by the environment he has grown in.
