Figdor, Carrie (2020) Relationship between cognition and moral status needs overhaul. Animal Sentience 29(3)
Irina Mikhalevich and Russell Powell, Minds without spines: Evolutionarily inclusive animal ethics
I commend Mikhalevich & Powell for extending the discussion of cognition and its relation to moral status with their well researched and argued target article on invertebrate cognition. I have two small criticisms: that the scala naturae still retains its appeal to some in biology as well as psychology, and that drawing the line at invertebrates requires a bit more defense given the larger comparative cognitive-scientific context.
