About this book

&i;`This important collection of essays represents most major currents of present thought in animal cognition: from the modularity of the mind to cultural evolution, from the search for episodic memory in animals to the properties of causal reasoning in humans, from honeybees to ravens. A crucial reference in this dynamic and rapidly evolving field.'&o; Alex Kacelnik, Professor of Behavioural Ecology, Oxford University
