Animal Sentience: Pushing the Boundaries

Animal Sentience: Pushing the Boundaries

Recent work has extended the boundaries of animal sentience to an unexpected degree. Claims of non-mammalian consciousness, including invertebrates and even plants, have been seriously proposed.

This one-day workshop, sponsored by the Centre for Philosophy of the Sciences, will explore the philosophical and ethical consequences of these extended boundaries.
