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.
