About this book

One of the leading figures in animal behaviour research examines how apes perceive and understand the physical world. 'Povinelli's central conclusion is that there is a major, qualitative difference between the everyday 'folk physics' of humans, who can mentally represent unobservable causal factors such as gravity and force, and the chimpanzee's folk physics, which is limited to perceptually available information.' Andrew Whiten, Nature
