    English EspañolIn this book the author takes on a journey to explore different work about the minds of animals Do animals have a concept of self? Do animals understand other's intentions? Do they communicate using language or do they just respond to stimilu?These are the kind of uestions that the author tries to explore and she does a great job explaining how hard it is to do research this area the advances in the science of animal behavior and cognition and explains a lot of concepts using great examples Is a great read but I think it is for people who already know about cognitive science or philosophy of mind or maybe biologists but I think a reader that does not read academic books that often could find a hard time with it En este libro la autora nos lleva a un increíble viaje para explorar los diferentes trabajos ue se han hecho sobre la mente de los animales ¿Los animales tienen autoconcepto? ¿Los animales entienden las intenciones de otros? ¿Se comunican por medio de un lenguaje o simplemente reaccionan reflexivamente ante estímulos? Estas son el tipo de preguntas ue la autora trata de resolver y hace un gran trabajo explicando las dificultades de hacer investigación en el área los avances científicos en cognición y conducta animal y explica los conceptos usando ejemplos muy acertados Es un libro increíble pero creo ue está dirigido a gente ue ya tiene conocimientos previos en cognición o filosofía de la mente aunue biólogos también podrían disfrutarlo El punto es ue no sé ue tan buena idea sea acercarse a él sin tener conocimientos previos
