Cognitive Ethology: The Minds of Other Animals: Essays in Honor of Donald R. Griffin

By Donald R. Griffin; Carolyn A. Ristau | Go to book overview

inform their sisters about the direction, distance, and desirability of various things suggests that even social insects may experience and communicate simple thoughts. We know too little about this whole area to reject even such an unfamiliar notion as this.

For all the reasons previously outlined above and many more that are discussed in appropriate detail by Walker ( 1983), Griffin ( 1984) and Roitblat ( 1987), cognitive ethology is in a very exciting state of ferment and development. It has certainly come a long way since I reviewed its prospects 10 years ago ( Griffin, 1978). Furthermore, cognitive ethology has significant ramifications, because (as discussed by Beer and Bennett in this volume) whatever cognitive ethologists can learn about the existence and nature of conscious and unconscious thinking in nonhuman animals contributes significantly to the fundamental philosophical problem of other minds.
