Animal Ethics and Animal Cognition Theme

Animal Ethics and Animal Cognition Theme

This cross cutting research theme develops interdisciplinary collaborative research on the cognitive capacities and moral status of animals, and the implications of these for human and animal interactions. It aims to contribute to an empirically informed animal philosophy and to enhance the quality of engagement and understanding between the sciences and the humanities around animals. The theme builds on existing research strengths in the Department of Philosophy on animal ethics and cognition, and taps into animal related work being done across existing research clusters in CAVE and Macquarie University more broadly.
