This paper discusses the fundamental thesis: Ethics (responsibility with itself, with animals, with the environment) is based on compassion, progressively become to successive second-order Mental States. Thus, this study puts on center of ethical research, especially when it is interlaced or is interweaving in relation to animals. The thesis that we hold is that ethics, strictly speaking, only when there is accountability, responsibility. One and the other are the human sphere and involve Mental States of second order (EM2). Only through this person can give an account of himself and others.
