“When you looked into her eyes—mahogany discs set back in the grizzled black of her face—what was there? I remember the question forming in my mind: can she think? The way my own brain felt to me, the sensation of existing inside a consciousness, was it like that in there?”
—Our southern editor John Jeremiah Sullivan on animal consciousness, in the ANIMALS issue of Lapham’s Quarterly.
Art Credit Augustus Schenck, “Anguish,” 1878.
