Philosophy of Science Women's Caucus Award to Professor Kristin Andrews


The Philosophy of Science Association's Women’s Caucus awarded its inaugural Prize Symposium to a panel entitled, “Animal Cognition and Animal Welfare,” which included Professor Kristin Andrews. The symposium took place at the 2016 PSA Biennial Meeting in Atlanta in November. The Women's Caucus commended the symposium for bringing together philosophers working in different areas — philosophy of cognitive science, philosophy of biology, and philosophy of animal cognition — with a distinguished neuroscientist and animal rights activist. The symposium included three women, including one senior philosopher (Kristin Andrews), one junior philosopher (Marta Halina), and one neuroscientist (Lori Marino).
