The Camden Philosophical Society’s 2014 Film and Lecture series will screen and discuss “Animal Sapiens,” a short 2003 film by Alvaro Mendoza, Tuesday, June 24, at 7 p.m. in the Picker Room of the downtown Camden Public Library.

During the development of human knowledge, a series of milestones have signaled key divisions between humans and other living beings — language, the use of tools, playing and laughing. “Animal Sapiens” reveals that many “inferior” animals undermine these theories … and that old philosophical definitions do not apply as exclusively to us as we had believed.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Camden Philosophical Society at
