SUMMARY
Are humans the only dreamers on Earth? Dreams provide an invaluable window into the cognitive and emotional lives of nonhuman animals, giving us access to a seemingly inaccessible realm of animal experience.

Join David Peña-Guzmán as he explores behavioural and neuroscientific research on animal sleep with philosophical theories of dreaming. From suggestions that many animals run ‘reality simulations’ while asleep to the profound implications for contemporary debates about animal cognition, ethics, and rights.

In this talk, discover a convincing case for animals as conscious beings and examine the thorny scientific, philosophical, and ethical questions it raises.

SPEAKER
David M. Peña-Guzmán received his PhD in Philosophy from Emory University in 2015. His dissertation, 'The Rational Turn in Continental Philosophy: Bachelard, Canguilhem, Foucault,' is an interrogation of the school of historical epistemology that appeared in France sometime between the 1920s and the 1950s.

David works on historical epistemology, animal studies, phenomenology, feminist theory, bioethics, and critical social theory. His work has appeared in journals such as 'Foucault Studies', 'The Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy', and 'Hypatia'.

This is a livestream event.

The live stream will go live at 7:25pm, and the introduction will begin at 7:30pm. If you register but miss the live stream, the video will be available to you via the same link for up to a week after the event date.
