The Animal Mind: A Textbook Of Comparative Psychology

Margaret Floy Washburn

The Animal Mind: A Textbook of Comparative Psychology is a comprehensive guide to the study of animal behavior and psychology. Written by Margaret Floy Washburn, a pioneering psychologist and the first woman to receive a PhD in psychology from Cornell University, the book provides a detailed overview of the methods, theories, and findings of comparative psychology.The book covers a wide range of topics, including animal cognition, perception, learning, memory, motivation, emotion, and communication. It also explores the evolutionary and ecological factors that shape animal behavior and the ways in which animals adapt to their environments.Throughout the book, Washburn draws on a wealth of research from across the animal kingdom, from insects and fish to birds and mammals. She also discusses the ethical implications of studying animal behavior and the ways in which our understanding of animal minds can inform our treatment of animals in captivity and in the wild.Written in clear, accessible language, The Animal Mind is an essential resource for students and researchers in psychology, biology, and animal science, as well as anyone interested in the fascinating world of animal behavior.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
