Summary

The philosophy of animal minds addresses profound questions about the nature of mind and the relationships between humans and other animals.

In this fully revised and updated introductory text, Kristin Andrews introduces and assesses the essential topics, problems and debates as they cut across animal cognition and philosophy of mind, citing historical and cutting-edge empirical data and case studies throughout.

The second edition includes a new chapter on animal culture. There are also new sections on the evolution of consciousness and tool use in animals, as well as substantially revised sections on mental representation, belief, communication, theory of mind, animal ethics and moral psychology.

Further features such as chapter summaries, annotated further reading and a glossary make The Animal Mind second edition an indispensable introduction to those teaching philosophy of mind, philosophy of animal minds, or animal cognition. It will also be an excellent resource for those in fields such as ethology, biology and psychology.
