    The proper usage of in vivo

    "In vivo" usually refers to "in the body of animals"? Can it be used to refer to "in the body of humans"?

    Of course. (In what sense is a human being not an animal?)

    In the sense that ONLY Human beings follow the Moral Law while all animals ignore it.

    Re: The proper usage of in vivo

    I regret opening up this red herring. If the OP would reread #2 s/he will see that I didn't exclude the possibility of a difference. We are animals, and there are people who believe we are something more. The grammatical point has nothing to do with philosophical speculation.
