ANIMALS IN TRANSLATION; Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior

New York: Scribner, 2005. Later printing. Hardcover. 6 x 9, 356 pgs, index, notes. Among its provocative ideas this book argues that language is not a requirement for consciousness; applies the autism theory of 'hyper-specificity' to animals showing that animals and autistic people are so sensitive to detail that they can't 'see the forest for the trees', explores the 'interpreter' in the human brain that filters out detail, examines how humans and animals use their emtions to think, and more.
