Description

An evaluation of the significance and usefulness of anthropomorphism and anecdotalism for understanding animals and humans. The 29 critical essays, written by historians, philosophers, anthropologists, psychologists, biologists, and primatologists, consider the debates between scientific and cultural analysis which fuels the question: Why anthropomorphize? These discussions suggest a number of reasons, pro and con, diving into the nature of anthropomorphism itself, and related topics in consciousness, cognition, and language. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
