Abstract: This is a peer review essay of Gail B. Murrow and Richard Murrow, A Hypothetical Neurological Association between Dehumanization and Human Rights Abuses, J. Law & BIOSCI. (2015). In our essay we agree with the authors arguments demonstrating the harmful effects of hate speech. We find their arguments to be erudite, and deeply thought out. However, their scientific premises rely on significant extrapolations from neurological theories on manifold human behavior that weaken overall analysis. Neurological reactions to hate speech are less informative than sociological ones demonstrating the manifold motivations behind dehumanizing rhetoric.
