Marc Bekoff is a leading scientist in the area of cognitive ethology (the observation of animals under natural conditions) قراءة التقييم بأكمله. Jane Goodall, 1934 - Jane Goodall, a well-respected English zoologist, is famous for her fieldwork with chimpanzees in Africa. An early interest in African wild animals and the opportunity, at age 18, to stay on a friend's farm in Kenya, led her to Dr. Louis Leakey; then curator of the National Museum of Natural History in Nairobi.

Marc Bekoff is a leading scientist in the area of cognitive ethology (the observation of animals under natural conditions). As an animal lover, I found myself nodding along to all of his statements. Even though Marc Bekoff presents scientific content, his writing style is simple and straight-forward. He thoroughly explains the scientific terms he uses. I walked away from the book having learned several new terms.

Anyone interested in animal emotion will want a copy of this book Bekoff opens the book by defining his field of study (cognitive ethology) and building a case for animal emotion.

Anyone interested in animal emotion will want a copy of this book. Bekoff speaks with the unique authority of an expert who is experiencing the success of a revolution in science and ethics that he helped make and that will endure (if we endure) as one of the signal achievements - along with the expansion of human rights and environmentalism - of the late twentieth century. Bekoff opens the book by defining his field of study (cognitive ethology) and building a case for animal emotion.

Author is a behavioral scientist who has studied animal behavior for many years. He relates through scientific evidence (physiology studies) and annecdotal stories of behavior why he feels it is obvious animals at least at the level of bony fishes and up the evolutionary ladder have emotions, show feelings and probably even have and practice moral behavior. His science also reviews brain anatomy, brain chemistry and fMRI studies of animals in the lab. His annecdotal stories are taken from many other respected behavoral scientists and have the unique plus of coming straight from the animals experiencing a free, wild existence, or sometimes from captive animals in true life habitats as in zoos.

The author does not shy away from the harder questions like do animals fall in love and do animals have a sense of fair play and right and wrong. Enjoyable, entertaining read with true scientific proof to support his conclusions.

I really enjoyed his book.

As hard as it is to believe, there are *still* people out there who doubt whether animals experience emotion. For anyone who lives with a cat, dog, bird, or other furry friend there is almost certainly no question the animal experiences a range of emotions. The range of those emotions, however, is open for debate but most of us don't doubt their existence.

Bekoff opens the book by defining his field of study (cognitive ethology) and building a case for animal emotion. He also touches on anthropomorphism and how this is a useful and meaningful way to describe animal emotion even though (hard) science has occasionally derided the person who assigns "human" emotion to animal behavior. The remainder of the book presents evidence and examples of animal emotion and behavior in support of his thesis.

An unattributed quote on p.23 sums up the book well: "If I assume that animals have subjective feelings of pain, fear, hunger, and the like, and if I am mistaken in doing so, no harm will have been done; but if I assume the contrary, when in fact animals do have such feelings, then I open the way to unlimited cruelties...Animals must have the benefit of the doubt, if indeed there be any doubt."

This book has changed my life... and how many books can I say have done that? You see, I am, and always have been an animal lover and have always felt that animals do indeed have emotions. I do believe they can feel love, pain, fear, jealousy... I have seen emotions in my own dogs, so why would I not believe this? But Marc Bekoff has taken me a step further to become pro-active. His narratives, backed up with research studies have caused me to become passionate about this subject and as a result, I have become vegetarian as I do not feel that I need to kill an animal to live. My remaining question is... why has it taken me so long?

It is a fascinating read and may well change your life too. I respect his writing and his view points and encourage you to read this eye-opening book, and by so doing, you may never look at animals in quite the same way again. And that would be a good thing!!!

More humans should make the effort to learn about animals' intelligence and ability to feel emotions (and act on them). Perhaps cruelty to animals would decrease if more people used our so-called "superior" intelligence to find out why the human race really is not superior!

interesting information...well written. Shares my dismay that it has taken us so long to agree that animals do have emotions!

What a great read. Thank goodness people like Marc are coming out to raise awareness we all already knew deep down about the feelings, suffering and emotional lives of animals. I now really understand why I don't frequent zoos, pet stores and the like. I must have connected with animals enough to know they were not happy.

Read the book and think about these revelations...

This lovely book should be in every classroom, library and home. It is a bright beacon of light along the road to better treatment of animals everywhere. Professor Bekoff shows how other animals are just like us. They share all of the same feelings and emotions that have previously been considered the sole prerogative of humans. This will come as a sobering thought for many people. However, it should be no surprise to anyone as we are all related and have merely branched out into different species and lifestyles through the process of evolution. All of us are fellow travellers on different roads through the same landscape.

For far too long 'animals' have been regarded as some sort of 'other'; something different from humans. It was a case of 'them' and 'us'. As a result other creatures have been abominably treated by man throughout history, and tragically still are. However, recent research shows that we are far more alike than we are different. We are all 'us', humans and other animals included. Other animals are just 'different kinds of us', that's all. They have minds as we do. They have personalities and all that goes with them. They have their own sense of self and their own viewpoint on the world.

As a result, Professor Bekoff's book is a biological Copernican revolution. It is a total change of mindset on how we view our fellow creatures. And not before time either. Professor Bekoff explains that we must regard other animals in a new light because of these findings. Because we are all so similar we have a duty to treat other animals with the respect they deserve. We must show them the kindness and compassion that we would members of our own species. We cannot continue to abuse them as we have done, and sadly, still do on a colossal scale and in colossal numbers. And by diminishing our fellow creatures we diminish ourselves.

Please read this marvellous book. It will open your eyes. You will never regard other animals the same again. There can be no progress in the world until we treat our fellow creatures with kindness and compassion.
