Call for Papers: When people regard other entities as objects
of ethical concern whose interests must be taken into account in moral
deliberations, does the attribution of consciousness to these entities
play an essential role in the process? In
recent years, philosophers and psychologists have begun to sketch
limited answers to this general question. However, much progress remains
to be made. We invite contributions to a special issue of The Review of
Philosophy and Psychology on the role of consciousness
attribution in moralcognition from researchers working in fields
including developmental, evolutionary, perceptual, and social
psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and philosophy.
