When Elephants Weep


Recommended Posts

I just finished reading "When Elephants Weep" by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson and Susan McCarthy. It was excellent! Truly a must read.


Here's a great summary: "With chapters on love, joy, anger, fear, shame, compassion, and loneliness, all framed by a provocative reevaluation of how we treat animals, "When Elephants Weep" is the first book since Darwin's time to explore the full range of emotions throughout the animal kingdom, and it features a cast of hundreds."


What I found the most interesting is the evidence of scientists constantly trying to prove that animals don't feel and that any attempt to prove the contrary is antrhopromorphising (the ultimate insult for the supposedly "objective" scientist.
