The Minds of Birds (the Forum)

20 November 2017, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

What is it like to be a bird? What do they think and how do they feel? What can comparative psychology tell us about the intelligence of birds? And what can we learn about birds, and about ourselves, from our encounters with them? In this dialogue, world-leading comparative psychologist Nicola Clayton and author and naturalist Mark Cocker give us a bird’s eye view on the world, and consider how human thought and culture have been shaped by interaction with birds.

Speakers
Nicky Clayton, Professor of Comparative Cognition, University of Cambridge
Mark Cocker, Author and naturalist

Chair
Jonathan Birch, Fellow, The Forum; Assistant Professor, Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method, LSE
