Description - When Elephants Weep by Jeffrey Masson

Arguments that animals possess an emotional life are often dismissed as sentimental anthropomorphism. Here Jeffrey Masson challenges that notion. He proposes that the objective scientific evidence for HUMAN emotions is all but non-existent. Thus, if the whole of our human psychological understanding rests on reflective inferences, why are the same criteria considered invalid for animals? Challenging and provocative, the book is rich in anecdote and psychological insight.
