Produktbeschreibung
It has been stated often that only humans make tools, deceive and plan far into the future - these exceptions have helped us define ourselves as the planets pre-eminent species. But in recent decades, these beliefs have been eroded by advances in the field of animal cognition. A growing body of evidence uncovered through the experimental techniques of behaviourism and the longitudinal study of named individuals from Japanese primatology, shows that we have grossly underestimated both the scope and scale of animal intelligence. Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? stands traditional behaviourism on its head to display the fascinating ways in which animals reveal their extraordinary intelligence.
