Sentience Is Not Always Present In Students

, , , , | Learning | August 8, 2018

(We’re in a class at university which is one of my favourites. We are learning about the history of animal welfare and historical arguments over sentience, such as if animals can really feel pain. It’s fascinating. Not long into the lecture, the door opens and a girl comes in whom I don’t recognise. She sits down and stays in the class for at least half an hour, until the lecturer asks her a question.)

Girl: “Sorry, I honestly don’t know. I’m in the wrong room, but it looked interesting, so I decided to stay. I need to go find my actual class.”
