About the book:

Intelligence is supposed to be one of the most important features unique to human beings, giving us the capacity to imagine, to deceive, to make complex connections between cause and effect, to devise elaborate strategies for solving problems. However, it is a product of evolution, opening the possibility that our nearest relatives - apes and monkeys - are also intelligent. Dr Bryne provides a detailed introduction to the differences and similarities between humans and other primates in their cognitive abilities, which is suitable for advanced courses in comparative psychology, animal learning and behaviour, biological anthropology, human sciences and zoology.
