DO ANIMALS REASON? [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 28 April 1914
DO ANIMALS REASON7 By Querist. One is often inclined to suppose thai individual creatures of diffe-.ir. vari tics do^Uuak.or reason. Hut if you look closely into any apparent process of reasoning >ou will probably come to the conclusion that at moat . ». is sub-conscious. In other words,v&lt;*reu* tures are not cognisant of the why and wherefore of facts; they may in occasional instances arrive nt the* ob vious result; hut they fail, generally, to make the simplest deduction. Dogs and horses most nearly a;» proach the brink of connected and deductive thought. Personally, I have i high opinion in this respect of cat.-* among domestic creatures, and fuxe> and rats anions wild. Cunning of * high order yon ma> witness in a creature; that euunnr. in result may lie often smarter than the outcome of conscious reasoning. That necessity is the mother of in vention (which, is productive thought! is a generally accepted axiom. Bui wheu you sec a horse in a field, from which it...
