  4. Why the question of animal consciousness might not matter very much

    | Contributor(s):: Peter Carruthers

    According to higher-order thought accounts of phenomenal consciousness (e.g. Carruthers, 2000) it is unlikely that many non-human animals undergo phenomenally conscious experiences.

  19. Terminal bond problems

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Myrna Milani
