Summary

Do Animals Think?. by Clive D. L. Wynne. Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ, 2004. 276 pp. $26.95, £17.95. ISBN 0-691-11311-4.

Unlike the authors of many other popular accounts of animal cognition, Wynne argues that "animals have neither the 'theory-of-mind' capabilities that humans have...nor the capacity for higher-level reasoning."
