Thinking Through Animals
Thursday 11 April
What do we know about how animals think and about ways of explaining their behaviour? Over the last century, cognition research has revealed a variety of advanced mental abilities in animals. In this panel, experts in philosophy, genetics and anthropology discuss the frontiers of animal research in relation to human self-understanding. Could we be close to a new agreement on the relationship between us and our furred or feathered friends?
