Donald Griffin wants, in this book, to challenge the behaviorism that has dominated much thinking about animal behavior for the past several decades. In several books, such as THE QUESTION OF ANIMAL AWARENESS and his later ANIMAL MINDS, Griffin has been intent on challenging assumptions that most or all animal behavior is merely instinctive/5(1).

Why is it important to know this? The book critically evaluates current concepts and puts a strong focus on the psychological mechanisms that underpin animal behavior. It offers comparative analyses that reveal common principles as well as adaptations that evolved in particular species in response to specific selective pressures.   What Animals Think and Feel by Carl Safina is a book brimming with amazing research and stories about the lives, abilities, the complex behaviors, and cultures of some of earths most fascinating animals (notablyelephants, wolves, dogs, and cetaceans, though remarkable references to turtles and birds and others are here too)/5.

  Animals, the research is proving, are creatures capable of reflection, bliss, worry and more. Not all of them in the same ways or to the same degrees, surely, but all of them in far deeper measures than we’ve ever believed. The animal mind is nothing like the wasteland it’s been made out to be. There is much on predator-prey behavior, on mating, nest-building, parental care, on social insects, and on the many varieties of animal communication. In due course, Griffin also probes the various definitions of thinking and consciousness and, importantly, suggests the kinds of experiments that might yield answers.   This book argues broadly that animal cognition shares some key features with autistic cognition picture-thinking, working memory shortages, detail-fixation, etc. It also takes a fascinating tour through what we know about animal Came for /5.
