Self/Concept/Animal/Heyes/Sterelny: Self-recognition in the mirror does not prove the possession of a self-concept (self-awareness).
But animals that move in an environment full of objects need a "body concept". Animals which recognize themselves in the mirror are not stimulus-dependent, that is, they recognize themselves over more than one stimulus channel.
