Thinking about Animal Minds: A Phenomenographic Exploration of Animal Consciousness in Whales and Bats

Thinking about Animal Minds: A Phenomenographic Exploration of Animal Consciousness in Whales and Bats

Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)

The research developed and tested a narrative methodology for exploring human knowledge making about animal consciousness, and considered the implications for re-situating animals in environmental ethics, conservation and education. In particular, this involved an examination of Western ideas about human-animal relationships, gathering anecdotal knowledge about consciousness in whales and bats and exploring the ethical and political implications of this knowledge.
