Reviews

Presents an authoritative, surprising and enriching picture of our monkey and ape cousins...The Primate Mind suggests that it may not be the capacity to imitate, but the motivation to do so that sets us apart from other animals. Like all good suggestions, this opens the door to more questions about the mechanisms and evolution of such motivation--and, ultimately, about how our own social minds evolved from the deeply interconnected minds of our primate cousins. -- Christian Keysers Nature 20120209 [The Primate Mind] showcases cutting-edge thinking about primate psychology and neurology...Even for non-specialists, The Primate Mind offers the excitement of seeing science begin to offer concrete answers to such fundamental and ancient human questions. -- Adam Kirsch Barnes & Noble Review 20120213 The research represented in this book clearly pushes the boundaries of what is known about how primates think, feel, and view the world and others around them. Overall, the book provides a wealth of fascinating and intriguing insights into primate minds. -- S. C. Baker Choice 20120701
