Sentient species may be defined in various ways, but in general refers to a species capable of agency, self-awareness, abstract cognition, and the capacity for culture.

This should be differentiable from non-sentient species by this capacity for abstraction and the creation of material and/or other cultural contructions (i.e. language, architecture, technology).

The line between sentience and non-sentience may be a topic of debate on certain species, and should be a discussion in the Talk section of the article.
