anthropodenial
 n.— «The ancients apparently never gave much thought to this practice, the opposite of anthropomorphism, and so we lack a word for it. I will call it anthropodenial: a blindness to the humanlike characteristics of other animals, or the animal-like characteristics of ourselves.» —“Are we in anthropo-denial?” by Frans De Waal Discover July, 1997.
