Inside the Animal Mind In the bestselling tradition of When Elephants Weep and Dogs Don t Lie About Love, Inside the Animal Mind is a groundbreaking exploration of the nature and depth of animal intelligence.While in the past scientists have refused to acknowledge that animals have anything like human intelligence, a growing body of research reveals otherwise We ve discovered ants that use leaves as tools to cross bodies of water, woodpecker finches that hold twigs in their beaks to dig for grubs, and bonobo apes that can use sticks to knock down fruit or pole vault over water Not only do animals use tools some also display an ability to learn and problem solve.Based on the latest scientific and anecdotal evidence culled from animal experts in the labs and the field, Inside the Animal Mind is an engrossing look at animal intelligence, cognitive ability, problem solving, and emotion George Page, originator and host of the long running PBS series Nature, offers us an informed, entertaining, and humanistic investigation of the minds of predators and scavengers, birds and primates, rodents and other species Illustrated with twenty four black and white photographs, the book is the companion to the three part, hour long show of the same name, hosted by Page From the Trade Paperback edition.

    More based toward those readers who like a scientific frame of reference to their books rather than the general understanding your pet purely anectodal ones so popular today Very enjoyable as well as enlightening.

    I ve always been interested in how our vision of the world resembles or differs from say a lion or a whale Animals are obviously very intelligent on different levels and I enjoy reading of the ways they display this This particular book gets into questions about whether animals can be said to have language or consciousness or awareness of themselves as individuals Fascinating stuff Well written, I thought I m no scientist, so I had no basis from which to be critical of Page s conclusi I ve always been interested in how our vision of the world resembles or differs from say a lion or a whale Animals are obviously very intelligent on different levels and I enjoy reading of the ways they display this This particular book gets into questions about whether animals can be said to have language or consciousness or awareness of themselves as individuals Fascinating stuff Well written, I thought I m no scientist, so I had no basis from which to be critical of Page s conclusions, but very few conclusions could be hadquestions discussed than laid to rest, and that s okay The main issue of all these questions would seem...

    George Page is a journalist, not a researcher Unfortunately, that does not save him from taking the posture of one who knows better He dismisses whole fields of discourse with offhand remarks, for example Eventually behaviorism melded with the equally notorious sociobiology as formulated by E O Wilson p 29 For an accessible yet scholarly exploration of animal cognition, I recommend Marc Hauser s Wild Minds Hauser is a scientist albeit one who has fallen from grace for unethical da George Page is a journalist, not a researcher Unfortunately, that does not save him from taking the posture of one who knows better He dismisses whole fields of discourse with offhand remarks, for example Eventually behaviorism melded with the equally notorious sociobiology as formulated by E O Wilson p 29 For an accessible yet scholarly exploration of animal cognition, I recommend Marc Hauser s Wild Minds Hauser is a scientis...

    First off, I hate this author I never made it far in his other books, because he just makes too many leaps, too early on Because of course it is is not science And yet he tries to present it as such However, this book was definitely better than the others At least a good jumping off point to find other interesting studies Less leaps, and when he does make a leap, he states that it is his opinion and it is not the only argument he uses to back his central points, unlike in his other book First off, I hate this author I nev...

    This is actually an excellent and fascinating exploration of consciousness The book gives a readable overview of the scientific and philosophical debates surrounding the study of consciousness Page explores these complex debates about consciousness in is not stuffy and overly academic The book has an excellent bibliography for those they would enjoy ...

    George Page does an excellent job of balancing the anecdotal with the scientific studies He not only provides excellent support for the argument of animal consciousness, he makes the reader think and perhaps change their perspective about how humans treat other animals and justify said treatment.

    The book was a lot of citing examples from other books or from experiments done on animals Cognition or consciousness After reading about the experiment done on bats which involved removing their eyes, I really didn t care any .
