However, they are not the only ones: chemoreception is another modalitythat biologists have found to be a contributor to self-recognition in numerous species, of which arthropods are notable.This article aims to help address the gap between philosophical and biological literature by presenting the octopus as anexample of a creature in which peripheral chemoreceptive processes appear to be a significant component of self-recog-nition. Building on the findings of Nesher et al. that chemical compounds in octopus skin interfere with the behaviour ofits suckers, this article proffers an account of how chemoreception may contribute to self-recognition in octopuses.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2020</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Carls-Diamante, Sidney</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2021-02-26T08:49:10Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
