We probably can assume that Aristotle knew at least some “sensitive” (conscious) animals which have very different preferences in taste than humans. For example vultures (they occur in Greece), which like carrion – something that has a repellent smell and taste for humans.
Did he ever make any attempt to incorporate this fact in his philosophy of mind and perception? To square this with his perceptual realism (= sensible qualities are mind-independent qualities of objects)?
What I mean is, if Aristotle thought that vultures experience the same smell and taste of carrion as humans – yet they like it. Or if they experience a different smell and taste.
