Models of (Animal) Communication
With Joshua Armstrong, UCLA.
In this talk, Armstrong discusses recent work related to questions concerning the form of our models of communication between non-human animals. Armstrong's point of departure is David Lewis’ influential sender-receiver model of interpersonal communication. Armstrong argues that the communicative behavior of non-human animals motivates the need to generalize Lewis’ models in ways that are now familiar using tools provided by evolutionary game theory.
