Tracing the evolutionary relationships between different kinds of marine animals tells us a lot about how and why consciousness might have evolved. In his lecture Peter Godfrey-Smith will discuss how and why octopuses and other cephalopods have a special place in this history. Godfrey-Smith is professor of history and philosophy of science at the University of Sydney and distinguished professor of philosophy at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. He is the author of Other Minds: The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness.
