You as an Individual

《個体としての君》

蝶と蛾の違いとは何か。一般的にいくつか特徴があると言われている。昼行性が蝶、夜行性が蛾。蛾は触角と体が太い。蝶は鮮やかで、蛾は地味。見た目や習性の違いから区別することが多いが、例外もあり、明確に違いを示すことは困難だ。そして、蝶と蛾は生物分類学上では区別されておらず、同じ鱗翅目の昆虫である。「蝶か蛾か」と問う時に、私たちは人間の一方的な視点に気づく。また、見た目から受ける印象は人によって意見が異なる。科学的と思われる種の定義に矛盾と偏見が生まれる。そこに人間らしさが潜んでいるのである。

​You as an Individual

What are the differences between butterflies and moths? Generally speaking, there are several different characteristics. Butterflies are diurnal, but moths are nocturnal. Moths have thicker antennae and bodies. Butterflies are colorful, but moths are darker. Butterflies and moths are often distinguished by their appearances and habits, but there are some exceptions, making a clear distinction difficult. Butterflies and moths are not distinguished in biological taxonomy and are both lepidopteran insects. When we ask ourselves, “Is it a butterfly or a moth?” we are reminded of our human-centered perspective. Furthermore, people have different opinions about the impression they receive from the appearance of things. Contradictions and prejudices arise in the supposedly scientific definition of species. We can catch a glimpse of human nature in it.
