The Emotional Lives of Animals Based on award-winning scientist Marc Bekoff's years studying social communication in a wide range of species, this important book shows that animals have rich emotional lives. Bekoff skillfully blends extraordinary stories of animal joy, empathy, grief, embarrassment, anger, and love with the latest scientific research confirming the existence of emotions that common sense and experience have lon Full description

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "We are all in the world together." 30 octobre 2016

As hard as it is to believe, there are *still* people out there who doubt whether animals experience emotion. For anyone who lives with a cat, dog, bird, or other furry friend there is almost certainly no question the animal experiences a range of emotions. The range of those emotions, however, is open for debate but most of us don't doubt their existence.

Bekoff opens the book by defining his field of study (cognitive ethology) and building a case for animal emotion. He also touches on anthropomorphism and how this is a useful and meaningful way to describe animal emotion even though (hard) science has occasionally derided the person who assigns "human" emotion to animal behavior. The remainder of the book presents evidence and examples of animal emotion and behavior in support of his thesis.

An unattributed quote on p.23 sums up the book well: "If I assume that animals have subjective feelings of pain, fear, hunger, and the like, and if I am mistaken in doing so, no harm will have been done; but if I assume the contrary, when in fact animals do have such feelings, then I open the way to unlimited cruelties...Animals must have the benefit of the doubt, if indeed there be any doubt."

Scientific research in Evolutionary biology, cognitive ethology, and social neuroscience supports the view that numerous and diverse animals have rich and deep emotional lives. Charles Darwin, was the first scientist to study the emotions of animals. He recognized 6 universal animal emotions: anger happiness, sadness, disgust, fear and suprise. He later expanded the list to include: anxiety, grief, dejection, despair, joy, love, devotion, ill-temper, sulkiness, determination, hatred, anger, distain, contempt, disgust, guilt, pride, helplessness, patience, suprise, astonishment, fear, horror, shame, shyness and modesty. In short, all the same emotions that humans have. Primary emotions are hard wired into the brain's evolutionary old limbic system, especially the amygdala, dating from far into the distant past. they are possessed by fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. Other brain structures are tied into emotions. These structures are similar in humans and other animals. This is why mice respond to Prozac. To those who own a dog, this is called "common wisdom". And explanations aren't needed. To scientists and others who abuse and mistreat animals, it is merely inconvenient that they feel anything at all.

In the USA animals are protected from abuse to some extent by the Animal Welfare Act, however, mice, rats and birds are not protected. Evidently they weren't considered to be animals.

The primate researcher Jane Goodall believes that not only do primates like gorillas and chimpanzees possess emotions, but that they also possess the precursors to religious ritual and recognize the gods of the elements like fire, waterfalls, thunder and lightning.

Marc Bekoff believes that there is considerable evidence that animals expierience the gamut of the varieties of love. More than 90% of bird species mate for life. Animals possess morality too.

Some scientists say we should not attribute human characteristics to nonhuman animals (anthropomorphism) yet some of these same scientists possess pets of their own, yet utilize a duel system of judgement, attributing feelings only to their own pets and not those in the lab.

In his book, The Emotional Lives of Animals, Marc Bekoff uses science plus anecdotes to illustrate the diverse emotional life of the creatures we share the earth with. It is his intent, as a scientist, to change the way we as humans use and abuse these animals for the benefit of mankind. He believes that animals were not placed here for our use, but that we were placed here together to live in harmony with all of nature. We humans are animals too. I concur.

Marc Bekoff is a wonderful and gentle writer about his studies of animal emotions. I've read three of his books (so far) and this was the first! He backs up his words with plenty of scientific studies -- his own, and those of other ethologists -- and he is amazingly non-confrontational toward scientists who may not agree with him. Everyone with a dog or other animal companion knows in his/her heart that animals have emotions very similar to those of humans, but now there is scientific evidence... and the growing fields of ethology (animal behavior) and neuroscience add more proof every day. The anecdotes in this book are very moving, and sometimes quite sad. Humans as a species need to learn to live with other animals, domesticated and wild, as we are all part of our planet's "ecology". Dr. Bekoff makes compelling arguments for compassionate and ethical treatment of all animals. That he writes so beautifully and with such respect and kindness only strengthens the impact of his stories and studies. I've bought second copies of this and another of his books as gifts for family members (so far), both of whom now want to read more by Dr. Bekoff!

Didn't tell me anything I didn't already know about the emotional issues of animals, and maybe it's because I have had pets all my life and have observed them closely. I did enjoy it, but I expected it to be a little more scientific. Animals are my passion and if I can understand mine even just a little bit more, I am happy. It was upsetting to hear how so many zoos are not what they purport to be in their humane treatment of animals. All told, it was a good read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Proves the fact animals have emotions like humans. 16 avril 2013
Par Lois - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Author is a behavioral scientist who has studied animal behavior for many years. He relates through scientific evidence (physiology studies) and annecdotal stories of behavior why he feels it is obvious animals at least at the level of bony fishes and up the evolutionary ladder have emotions, show feelings and probably even have and practice moral behavior. His science also reviews brain anatomy, brain chemistry and fMRI studies of animals in the lab. His annecdotal stories are taken from many other respected behavoral scientists and have the unique plus of coming straight from the animals experiencing a free, wild existence, or sometimes from captive animals in true life habitats as in zoos.

The author does not shy away from the harder questions like do animals fall in love and do animals have a sense of fair play and right and wrong. Enjoyable, entertaining read with true scientific proof to support his conclusions.

I really enjoyed his book.
