This book encompasses the behavior and mentality of nonhuman as well as human animals and a full range of evolutionary approaches. Rather than a collection by and for the like-minded, it is a debate about how evolutionary processes have shaped cognition.

About the Author:

Gerd B. Müller, is Professor of Zoology and Head of the Department of Theoretical Biology at the University of Vienna and President of the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research.

Review:

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.―Alex Kacelnik, Professor of Behavioural Ecology, Department of Zoology, Oxford University (Endorsement)
