If insects are conscious, then what?

16 05 2016

Nice piece by Peter Singer in the Globe & Mail yesterday (with thanks to Ian). The PNAS article it’s based on, which I’ve not yet read of course, seems to argue that insects have an analog to the mammalian midbrain. But who thinks that the midbrain is the key to subjective experience?? No-one aside from Merker, I didn’t think. Looks like I’d better get reading.
