內容簡介

《心理學家教你的透視術》(Psy-Q)作者打破關於動物的各種迷思!

人類有何特別之處?
我們與其他動物究竟有什麼不同?
您認為自己比大猩猩更聰明嗎?

包括人類在內,所有的動物都十分獨特;不過,人類與其他動物的差異,也許比您想像中的還要少!本書以各式精巧的測驗、謎題與遊戲,讓人類與各式動物競賽,從懂文法的海豚、會加法的鸚鵡、到贏過世界頂尖數學家的蟻群,動物不僅足以與人類匹敵,更超越人類!

作者拆穿關於動物的迷思,透露動物心理學家如何為驢子設計性格測驗、為鴿子設計邏輯問題。本書汲取科學領域的最新研究,將不僅會令您露出會心一笑,更質疑人類在動物世界中的地位!

What makes humans special? What makes us different from animals? Psy-Q author Ben Ambridge's entertaining, illuminating new book has a surprising answer: less than you might think. Really, we're all just animals. But all animals - us included - are pretty special. Are You Smarter Than a Chimpanzee? is a collection of ingenious tests, puzzles, quizzes and games that pits the reader against a range of extraordinary creatures to show that, from dolphins that understand grammar to parrots that can add up, via fetishist quails and the ant-swarms outsmarting the world's best mathematicians, the animal kingdom is more than a match for anything mankind has to offer. Along the way, Ambridge debunks a plethora of common myths about animals and reveals the bizarre and wonderful science being done at the extreme end of zoology, where animal psychologists are designing personality tests for donkeys and logic problems for pigeons. Based on real, cutting-edge science, Are You Smarter Than a Chimpanzee? makes us laugh, makes us think and above all makes us question our assumptions about our place in the animal kingdom.
