HPS Virtual Conversation

A great deal of work in comparative psychology – the study of human and nonhuman animal minds – is dedicated to the question of how to avoid bias. How do we ensure researchers are not anthropomorphising (or oversimplifying) their subjects? In her new book, How to Study Animal Minds (2020), Kristin Andrews argues that comparative psychologists should aim to integrate a wide range of approaches for studying animal minds, rather than focus on avoiding bias. This Virtual Conversation brings together four scholars working at the intersection of HPS and comparative psychology to explore the question, ‘how should we study animal minds?’.

Speakers: Kristin Andrews (York University), Mike Dacey (Bates College), Ali Boyle (University of Cambridge), Marta Halina (University of Cambridge)
