Waller, Sara

Associate Professor
Philosophy
Montana State University

I am interested in philosophy of language and mind with an interest in animal minds. Particularly, I am interested in the relationship between brain architecture, sensory systems, concepts and language, and how to determine semantic content of vocalizations of cooperative predators. Predator well being is an excellent measure of environmental well being -- if predators are scare, it tells us that prey are also scarce, and so some environmental imbalance is afoot.
