Abstract

Until recently there have been pitifully few attempts by humans to communicate with and "learn the wisdom of" our fellow beings on Earth. But is it possible for us to learn the "language" and the true capacities of other animals? Do animals have intelligence at all? The answers to these questions are vital to our ability to live on and manage this planet. And they are vital to us if we are ever really to understand our own capacities, as well.
