Harnad, Stevan (2023) Insentient “cognition”?. Animal Sentience 33(2)
Miguel Segundo-Ortin and Paco Calvo, Plant sentience? Between romanticism and denial: Science
A sentient state is a state that it feels like something to be in. Cows have them, cars don’t. Cognitive capacities are a subset of behavioral capacities. Not all behavioral capacities are cognitive (but the distinction is fuzzy). Might the difference have something to do with whether the behaver is sentient?
