Extractions: This course is designed to acquaint cognitive scientists with the basic theoretical approaches and empirical findings of research into nonhuman primate cognition. In the past 15 years, many new facts have been discovered about the cognitive abilities of nonhuman primates, especially monkeys and apes. These new facts have come from detailed field studies, from experimental work with captive animals, and from research with apes who have been raised in human-like cultural environments with exposure to cultural artifacts such as tools and language. Many of the new findings have come as a result of the discovery that most of the intellectual resources of primates are used to deal not with the physical environment, but with the social environment. The course will focus on three types of primates: (i) monkeys, (ii) apes, and (iii) "enculturated apes". Both naturalistic and experimental work will be reviewed, and cross-species comparisons will be emphasized. In terms of content, the focus will be on two main sets of issues:

Extractions: Biological Sciences The Minds of the Great Apes Hardback In stock What special qualities of mind set the great apes apart from other nonhuman primates, and indeed from ourselves? In this book, field and laboratory researchers show that the great apes have high level abilities in both social and ecological domains, including tool use, pretense, self-awareness, deception, consolation, teaching and culture itself. Great apes are also shown to be capable of thinking at symbolic levels, traditionally considered to be uniquely human. Here, the mechanisms involved in building these abilities - especially the lengthy developmental and enculturation processes - are emphasized, showing how new discoveries are changing views on how primates and human intelligence evolved. This book is for anyone interested in current research and theoretical views of great ape cognition. excellent chapters based on both captive and field experiments.Craig B.

Extractions: Go to SRB Archives This review appeared in Volume 9 (2) of The Semiotic Review of Books. Reaching Into Thought: The Minds of the Great Apes. Ed. by. Anne E. Russon, Kim A. Bard and Sue Taylor Parker, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. 1996. pp 464. ISBN 0521 47168 Chapter 4 compares aspects of social intelligence between apes and monkeys, in this case macaques. The research observes a particular level of social skill in post conflict situations, based on activities of a third party. The two third party behaviours investigated are third party mediated reconciliation and consolation of the loser. The varying levels of these behaviours seen between chimpanzees and macaques may partly rest on social constraints which in the more hierarchically organized macaques may interfere with loser support. In addition the argument is put forward that for chimpanzee consolation is really a more intellectually oriented event in that it involves the idea of comprehending the upset mental state of the recipient of consolation without sharing the emotion and thus becoming involved in the conflict. This ability differs from third party intervention, which is seen in macaques, because of the mental aspect of seeing yourself in another's situation. In conclusion Russon argued that the learning involved was not necessarily the main function of the imitation. Rather, by replicating non specific behaviour of favoured demonstrators, such as placing grave markers or sharpening blow gun darts they were participating in the demonstrators social circle. Interpersonal goals are seen in human infants who play peekaboo or replicate the posture and words of others. These interpersonal goals may well reflect the social bases which have been argued to underlay intellectual capabilities in apes. This level of understanding the possible goals of orangutans is quite different from the experimentally induced physically matched, goal directed behaviour regarded as true imitation in many lab situations.

Extractions: Go to SRB Archives This review appeared in Volume 7 (3) of the Semiotic Review of Books. The Evolution of Communication. By Marc D. Hauser. Cambridge: MIT Press, 1996, xiii, 760 pp. ISBN 0-262-08250-0 The evolution of language is a hot topic. New books on the subject garner attention in the popular media, and their authors are sought for appearance on televised documentaries. Currently, the dominant view is that language evolved wholly within the hominid (human ancestral) lineage, whether beginning early in that lineage at millions of years ago (Pinker 1994) or only more recently with our own species (Bickerton 1995, Noble and Davidson 1996). Human language is thus sharply different from all types of animal communication. The contrasting, minority position (Savage-Rumbaugh et al. 1993, King 1994, Armstrong et al 1995) allows deeper roots for language and precursors to features of human language in animal communication systems. Variations on these two views have been repeated for centuries. Theorists in the first group seize any new scrap of information about the unique properties of human language to bolster their discontinuity view, whereas theorists in the second group search for data from the animal world to bolster their continuity view. The whole enterprise thus begins to resemble an endless ping-pong match with back-and-forth debate but little productive dialogue.

Extractions: Dr. Lyn Miles, seated, with Paul McCartney, right. Professor Meets Beatle Miles is also president of the Chantek Foundation, named in honor of the orangutan Miles raised as "my cross-foster son on the UTC campus, beginning in 1978." The goal of the foundation is to create a culture and conservation center where Chantek and other enculturated apes would reside, and use tools, computers, art and sign language. "The Community Foundation of Chattanooga can receive tax-exempt donations to the Chantek Foundation, while its nonprofit status is pending," Miles said. Chantek currently resides at Zoo Atlanta, where Miles serves as a senior research fellow.

Mrs. Johns. . . was delighted with her bird's new home. "You could tell he was really pleased, he ran about rounding up his hens." The Guardian, June 1, 1993 This snippet from a human interest story concerns a noisy cockerel, "Corky," recently relocated to a remote farmyard to avoid disturbing a neighbor who had won a court case to get the bird silenced. Other neighbors were reported to have joined Mrs. Johns in what the judge called "some sort of crusade on behalf of oppressed chickens" (Sharrock, 1993). Note the similarity between Mrs. Johns's reported reaction and that attributed to her cockerel, and the reason given for that attribution. Try substituting annoyed, anxious, unhappy or other negative feelings for "pleased" and see if the sentence is any less convincing. LOOKING IN THE MIRROR The most common trope for these concerns must be the "Mirror to Man." We study apes, "those amazing creatures that can teach us so much about ourselves" (Goodall, 1971, p. 14). "Discovery of extraterrestrial life would utterly transform our own view of ourselves as a species" (Professor Martin Rees, Director of Cambridge University's Institute of Astronomy, quoted in "SETIthe search," 1990). Technology in general may be seen as the Mirror (Woolgar, 1987, p. 312), or at least artificial intelligence (AI) may, and some projections of that enterprise produce reflections indistinguishable from the human original: "If machines do come to simulate all of our internal cognitive activities, to the last computational detail, to deny them the status of genuine persons would be nothing but a new form of racism" (Churchland, 1988, p. 120).
Extractions: Byrne, The Thinking Ape (Oxford, 1995) This course is designed to cover the evolution of human cognition in a focussed interdisciplinary framework. It aims at cultivating scholarly and analytical skills, and a broad perspective on the study of the human mind. Students are expected to pursue a selected topic from the course in a major seminar, and to expand on that topic in their term papers. Relevant material for seminars and papers may be drawn from a variety of fields, but must always be directly related to the central topic around which this course is organized, human cognition. The seminar will be worth roughly 40%, and the term paper will be worth roughly 60%. I also take into account class participation. I encourage students to speak up in class, and to take an active, critical attitude towards the material we are covering. Core references are contained in the three texts. Special readings will be assigned to students to support their specific seminar/paper topics: for instance, hominid evolution; language evolution; origins of symbols; comparisons between child and chimpanzee representation; comparisons of cognition in oral and literate cultures, and so on. I give this course a major chunk of my time, and I am available to advise students on their topics outside of class time.
