DO ANIMALS REASON? [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 8 May 1914
DO ANIMALS REASON? By Querist. One is often inclined to suppose that Individual creatures of digfelout var ties do "buink or reason. But if- you look closely into any apparent process of reasoning you will probably come to the conclusion, that at most Ii is Sub-conscious. In other wordsAcrea tures are not cognisant of the why and wherefore of facts; they may in occasional instances arrive at the ob 'ioes result; but they fail, generally, to make the simplest deduction. Dogs and horses most nearly ap. liroach the brink of cohnected ann deductive thought. Personally, I have a high opinion in this respect of catll iumong domestic creatures, and foxes and rats ampong wild. Cunning of a high order you nia: writness in a creature; that cunnin. in result may he often smarter thai; the oultcomie of conscious reasonling. That" necessity is the mother of in vention (which is productive thought, is a" generally accepted axiom. But wrhen you see a horse in a field, fron which it badly wants to ...
