Henrietta Moore's UCL Lunch Hour Lecture on 28 January 2016.

Many communities around the world think of landscapes, plants, rocks, winds, non-human ancestors and a variety of physical phenomena, beings and entities as having consciousness and intentionality.

A video of the lecture is available on Youtube
