Description
 
Stephen Budiansky. Here, Budiansky poses the fundamental question: “What is intelligence?” He begins by exposing our tendency to see ourselves in animals, & to perceive intelligence only in behavior that mimics our own. Each species is so specialized that most of their abilities are simply not comparable. Budiansky investigates the bizarre research behind animal intelligence experiments & reveals that often these animals are responding to our tiny unconscious cues. Budiansky lays out scientists’ interpretations of animal intelligence discoveries in terms of what we know about ourselves. Modern cognitive science & the new science of evolutionary ecology are beginning to show that thinking in animals is tremendously complex & wonderful in its variety.
