Reviews

The Evolution of the Sensitive Soul is a landmark attempt to make progress on the problem of animal consciousness.... The word "ambitious" does not do it justice... The Evolution of the Sensitive Soul is a book to capture the imagination of anyone with an interest in animal consciousness, whatever their disciplinary background. Neuroscientists, cognitive scientists, evolutionary biologists, comparative psychologists, and historians and philosophers of biology will learn a great deal from it.--ACTA BIOTHEORETICA--
