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. Speakers will be Johnathan Birch (LSE), Heather Browning (ANU), Monica Gagliano (UWA), Peter Godfrey-Smith (University of Sydney), Liz Irvine (Cardiff), Robert C. Jones (Cal State, Chico). A full schedule with titles will be posted shortly. 

Registration is free, but required for catering purposes.
