Animal intelligence: proceedings of a Royal Society discussion meeting held on 6 and 7 June 1984, Volume 308
Clarendon Press, 1985 - Literary Criticism - 223 pages
A clothbound reprint of Volume 308 of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society (1865), this collection of sixteen papers reviews the current state of knowledge on animal intelligence. Bringing together findings from both laboratory and field observations, the contributors consider topics such as thinking without language, innovative behavior in primates, the capacity of animals to acquire language, and signs of intelligence in cross-fostered chimpanzees. Insightful and at times controversial, these essays will interest professionals and lay readers concerned with psychology, ethology, and with the evolution of language and intelligence.
