Description


Cognition includes the mental capacities of reasoning, problem solving, consciousness, and language, in other words, all of the mental processes we usually think of as uniquely human. This course will address how animal cognition is characterized in modern science. We will ask what the known mental capacities of other animals include, and whether or not they share any similarities with human cognition. This course provides an overview of the history and theory of the field, methodological challenges facing those who study animal cognition (you can’t just ask a dog, “so, what exactly is going on in that pretty head of yours?”), and some recent findings in the areas of non-human primate, dolphin and canine cognition.
