COCO 22 Philosophy and Neuroscience of Animal Minds

This course will explore the nature of non-human non-linguistic animal thought, from both philosophical and empirical perspectives. Drawing on readings from philosophy and scientific journals, we will focus on three questions: (1) can nonhuman animals feel pain?; (2) can nonhuman animals exhibit “mental time travel”?; and (3) can they represent the mental states of others?Emphasis will be on integrating insights from both fields to better understand the nature of thought.
