Sentience - Wikipedia Philosophy and sentience In the philosophy of consciousness, sentience can refer to the ability of any entity to have subjective perceptual experiences, or as some philosophers refer to them, "qualia". This is distinct from other aspects of the mind and consciousness, such as creativity, intelligence, sapience, self-awareness, and intentionality (the ability to have thoughts about something). Sentience is a minimalistic way of defining consciousness, which is otherwise commonly collectively describes sentience plus other characteristics of the mind. Shut Up and Listen (And Other Advice for First-Time Leaders) Unless you’re a solo freelancer, chances are you will eventually be thrust into a leadership position.
