Space & Number in Animal Minds

Space & Number in Animal Minds

This workshop brings together scientists and philosophers who are interested in how animals represent properties like distance, location, time, and number. The goal is to pursue a richer understanding of how brain and behaviour intersect in natural contexts (e.g. in navigation tasks) and assess the consequences for classic philosophical issues like the modularity of mind, the format of mental representation, evolutionary transitions in cognition, and the nativism/empiricism debate.
