EA Book Club Discussion: Animal Consciousness

Needs a location

For this installment of the EA book club/reading group we'll be learning about and discussing animal consciousness. I'm not too familiar with this field, so hopefully others will be able to suggest materials for us to read. Here are some to get us started:

(1) The Wikipedia page on animal consciousness has a good overview, but there are probably more up-to-date sources out there: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_consciousness

(2) Related 80000 hours podcast: https://80000hours.org/podcast/episodes/david-chalmers-nature-ethics-consciousness/

Please DM me if Facebook tells you your post needs admin approval. Otherwise I might not see your post and take a long time to approve it. It seems like posts with hyperlinks are the only ones that get flagged.
