Bruce Jay Friedman

Vincent Van Gogh
Understanding does not cure evil, but it is a definite help, inasmuch as one can cope with a comprehensible darkness.
There are a lot of obstacles in the way of our understanding animal intelligence - not the least being that we can't even agree whether nonhuman species are conscious. We accept that chimps and dolphins experience awareness; we like to think dogs and cats do. But what about mice and newts? What about a fly? Is anything going on there at all?
