sapient : possessing or expressing great sagacity (sapient, 2015) [1]blank.gifWebster | OneLook | Visuwords
Sapience is the ability of an organism or entity to act with appropriate judgment, a mental faculty which is a component of intelligence or alternatively may be considered an additional faculty, apart from intelligence, with its own properties. (Sapience, 2015) [2]blank.gif Wikipedia
sentient : responsive to or conscious of sense impressions <sentient beings> (sentient, 2015) [3]blank.gifWebster | OneLook | Visuwords
Sentience is the ability to feel, perceive, or be conscious, or to have subjective experiences. Eighteenth century philosophers used the concept to distinguish the ability to think ("reason") from the ability to feel ("sentience"). In modern western philosophy, sentience is the ability to have sensations or experiences. For Eastern philosophy, sentience is a metaphysical quality of all things that requires respect and care. The concept is central to the philosophy of animal rights, because sentience is necessary for the ability to suffer, which entails certain rights. In science fiction, non-human characters described as "sentient" typically have similar abilities, qualities and rights as human beings. (Sentience, 2015) [4]blank.gif Wikipedia
