Date: 6:00pm - 8:30pm PDT October 27, 2011 Location: Smith Hall, Albany
Smith Hall, Albany
This fall, the Philosophy Extravaganza has chosen as its topic, “Can animals think?” Questions of whether animals, or more generally non-humans, can think have long puzzled philosophers and non-philosophers alike, and are today of an especially high importance; for example, we all must deal with questions of how non-human thought informs our ethical views. Please join us for a panel discussion on animal thought, featuring: Ken Clifton (Biology), Becko Copenhaver (Philosophy), Erik Nilsen (Psychology), and Kathy Hessler (Animal Law). Refreshments will be provided.
