The Animal Mind, An Introduction to the Philosophy of Animal Cognition 2nd Edition
The philosophy of animal minds addresses profound questions about the nature of mind and the relationships between humans and other animals.
In this fully revised and updated introductory text, Kristin Andrews introduces and assesses the essential topics, problems, and debates as they cut across animal cognition and philosophy of mind, citing historical and cutting-edge empirical data and case studies throughout.
The second edition includes a new chapter on animal culture. There are also new sections on the evolution of consciousness and tool use in animals, as well as substantially revised sections on mental representation, belief, communication, theory of mind, animal ethics, and moral psychology. Further features such as chapter summaries, annotated further reading, and a glossary make The Animal Mind an indispensable introduction to those teaching philosophy of mind, philosophy of animal minds or animal cognition. It will also be an excellent resource for those in fields such as ethology, biology, and psychology. Small Animal Clinical Pharmacology 2nd Edition
Essential for anyone interested in the philosophy of animal cognition. Andrews expertly combines science and philosophy to show how rich, complex, and varied animal minds can be. She also shows how the study of animal minds can improve our understanding of consciousness, language, reason, culture, morality, human nature, and more. If you want a new appreciation of the many animals you share the world with, as well as of yourself, you should read this book.
Andrews does not merely present the major theories and latest research into animal cognition. She also evaluates the quality of that research and the arguments advanced by notable philosophers, psychologists, ethologists and biologists. For readers unfamiliar with the terminology frequently used by specialists in those fields, Andrews includes a clear glossary. Likewise, the entire book is written in an engaging style, avoiding the mind-numbing tendencies that introductory textbooks can produce.
