A New York Times Bestseller From world-renowned biologist and primatologist Frans de Waal, a groundbreaking work on animal intelligence destined to become a classic. What separates your mind from an animal’s? Maybe you think it’s your ability to design tools, your sense of self, or your grasp of past and future—all traits that have helped us define ourselves as the planet’s preeminent species. But in recent decades, these claims have eroded, or even been disproven outright, by a revolution in the study of animal cognition. Take the way octopuses use coconut shells as tools; elephants that classify humans by age, gender, and language; or Ayumu, the young male chimpanzee at Kyoto University whose flash memory puts that of humans to shame. Based on research involving crows, dolphins, parrots, sheep, wasps, bats, whales, and of course chimpanzees and bonobos, Frans de Waal explores both the scope and the depth of animal intelligence. He offers a firsthand account of how science has stood traditional behaviorism on its head by revealing how smart animals really are, and how we’ve underestimated their abilities for too long. People often assume a cognitive ladder, from lower to higher forms, with our own intelligence at the top. But what if it is more like a bush, with cognition taking different forms that are often incomparable to ours? Would you presume yourself dumber than a squirrel because you’re less adept at recalling the locations of hundreds of buried acorns? Or would you judge your perception of your surroundings as more sophisticated than that of a echolocating bat? De Waal reviews the rise and fall of the mechanistic view of animals and opens our minds to the idea that animal minds are far more intricate and complex than we have assumed. De Waal’s landmark work will convince you to rethink everything you thought you knew about animal—and human—intelligence.

‘Kendimizle aramızdaki fark, bir başkasıyla aramızdaki fark kadar büyüktür.’ Montaigne Siz daha tehlikeyi algılamadan, ayağınızı fren pedalının üstüne götüren kim? Dinlemediğinizi sandığınız bir konuşma sırasında adınız geçtiğinde duymanızın sebebi ne? Neden sır saklamakta böylesine başarısız, nedenini bilmeden birini çekici bulmakta bu kadar başarılıyız? Eğer bilinçli zihin, yani sabah uyandığınızda sizinle birlikte uyanan ben, buzdağının yalnızca görünen kısmıysa, zihninizin geri kalanı tüm bir ömür neyle iştigal etmekte? Ünlü nörobilimci David Eagleman, 20 dilde yayımlanan –ve neredeyse şimdiden klasikleşen– kitabı Incognito ile beynimizin derinlerine dalarak, yaptığımız, düşündüğümüz ya da hissettiklerimizin çok büyük bir kısmının bizden başka bir biz tarafından yönetildiğini ürkütücü bir berraklıkla ortaya koyuyor. Sadakat geninden sizi olmadığınız birine dönüştüren beyin zedelenmelerine; optik yanılsamalardan striptizcilerin neden ayın belirli zamanlarında daha çok para kazandığına; Truva fatihi Odysseus'tan renkleri işitip biçimleri tadabilen sinestezik insanlara kadar geniş bir yelpazeden vakaları ve araştırmaları bir araya getiren Incognito, beynimizin işleyişi ve çelişkileri hakkında olağanüstü bir keşif yolculuğu sunuyor.

"This revolutionary new book shows us that everything we thought about power is dead wrong. It is not gained, as the Machiavellian view says, through coercive force. Influence comes instead to those who are socially intelligent and empathetic - but ironically the seductions of power make us lose those very qualities that made us powerful in the first place. By drawing on fascinating case studies that debunk longstanding myths, Dacher Keltner illuminates this 'power paradox', revealing how it shapes not just companies and elections but everyday relationships. Both power and powerlessness distort human behaviour, affecting whether or not we will have an affair, break the law, suffer from depression or find our purpose in life. By redefining power as the ability to do good for others, Keltner turns everything we know about influence, status, and inequality upside down. 'Dacher Keltner is the most interesting psychologist in America.' Michael Lewis'Keltner's brilliant research gives us a lens that lets us see afresh hidden patterns in society, politics, and our own lives. No doubt this will be one of the most significant science books of the decade.' Daniel Goleman, author ofaEmotional Intelligence'His combination of academic sophistication and clear style delivers a new concept of power in our society today that is provocative and intriguing.' Sheryl WuDunn, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author ofaHalf the Sky: How to Change the Worlda'Dacher Keltner applies a lifetime of research to this topic, offering a lively description of how true power is like a return on a social investment in others.' Frans de Waal, author ofAre We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are?'Everyone can learn from this wise book.' Susan T. Fiske, Professor of Psychology at Princeton and author ofaSocial Cognition"
