Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? by Frans de Waal

Frans_De_Waal.jpg

Nowadays most of us live with pets because we love animals. We assume we need to "take care of them" since their intelligence is inferior to ours.

But perhaps they are just different, very very different. In the newly-released Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? zoologist Frans de Waal reveals how intelligent animals actually are, and how we as human beings have generally underestimated their abilities.

People often assume a cognitive ladder, from lower to higher forms, with our own intelligence at the top. But what if it is more like a bush, with cognition taking different forms that are often incomparable to ours? Would you presume yourself dumber than a squirrel because you're less adept at recalling the locations of hundreds of buried acorns? Or would you judge your perception of your surroundings as more sophisticated than that of a echolocating bat? De Waal reviews the rise and fall of the mechanistic view of animals and opens our minds to the idea that animal minds are far more intricate and complex than we have assumed. De Waal's landmark work will convince you to rethink everything you thought you knew about animal―and human―intelligence.

His research was based on crows, dolphins, parrots, sheep, wasps, bats, whales, and the usual chimpanzees and bonobos. At Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are?

Hot Pet Book -- Kinship with All Life by J. Allen Boone

Kinship_With_All_Life.jpg

Problems are often caused by a lack of communication, although here at SCP HQ they are sometimes caused by too much communication.

But that is amongst those of us who use speech. Wouldn't it be great to communicate better with our pets and other animal friends, though, rather than trying to decipher their body language and voice tone?

J. Allen Boone's Kinship with All Life is all about how animals communicate with each other and the people who understand them. You will never look at animals the same way again!

Open up new horizons at Kinship with All Life.
