Do Animals Engage in Conceptual Thought?

Philosophy Compass 7 (3):218-229 (2012)
Abstract
This paper surveys and evaluates the answers that philosophers and animal researchers have given to two questions. Do animals have thoughts? If so, are their thoughts conceptual? Along the way, special attention is paid to distinguish debates of substance from mere battles over terminology, and to isolate fruitful areas for future research.
