He truffles up some wonderful animal facts, too. They know they are seeing images of themselves. Can squirrels be said to be good or bad? Horses feel shame, deer grieve, and goats discipline their kids. Können Tiere denke wie Menschen? Other Titles: Seelenleben der tiere. It's not preachy, nor is it intended to be a formal scientific treatise although it references the results of numerous scientific studies , which makes for an enjoyable but still enlightening read. When a crow sees Wohlleben watching, it pretends to bury the acorn it is carrying, and surreptitiously takes the treasure elsewhere. There is the story of a humpback whale in the Sea of Cortez in Mexico that put on an hour-long display of breaching and flipper flapping after a man called Michael Fishbach spent hours cutting off a fishing net in which it had been hopelessly entangled.
He truffles up some wonderful animal facts, too. The latest scientific research and observations though is uncovering a very different story. Bei welchen Tieren hört die Empfindsamkeit auf? Wohlleben owns a number of domesticated animals, and they spend their days in locations enclosed by electric fences. The reader does not leave the forest, and this aura intensifies the awareness of intricate natural life that the book has to offer. An interesting book about the emotional behaviour of all kinds of animals, domestic and wild, from flies to deer, through the observation and scientific knowledge of the author.
He has spent much of his life outdoors. Wohlleben writes of grief, fear, hierarchy, thievery, altruism, aging, and love. Lots are known about dolphi Animals of all kinds have played a part in the human story from way back; they have been companions, used for work, providing and actually being the food in a lot of cases too. In The Inner Life of Animals Wohlleben writes with the same love, respect, and appreciation of animals as he wrote about trees. They take chemical information from tree to tree — about predators, weather, drought and other damage. As we discover evidence for animals having many similar thought processes and emotions, how can we keep acting as though comparisons to human emotions is an error in judgement? Mice are distressed when another mouse suffers, especially one they know. Recognizing that nonhumans and humans share a wide range of emotions and that because they are sentient beings they suffer when they are mistreated, it's my hope that people around the world will pay careful to the harm they cause other animals and will rapidly change their ways.
O zwierzętach można bardzo dużo opowiadać, i Wohlleben ma przyjemnie konwersacyjny styl choć tłumaczenie bądź redakcja chyba mniej mu podołało niż w pierwszej książce - brakowało mi tych informacji o polskim kontekście, które trafiły do przypisów w życiu drzew , ale nie było to specjalnie odkrywcze ani aż tak poruszające. From the leafy forest floor to the inside of a bee hive, The Inner Life of Animals shows us microscopic levels of observation as well as forcing us to confront the big philosophical, ethical and scientific questions. The new book is a pleasant voyage into a kinder and gentler mindset. This is really a book about love for animals, empathy for them, and a desire to understand why they act as they do. Puikiai suprantu tokius žmones ir pati taip elgčiausi jei turėčiau tam sąlygas. He is fascinated by the richness of the emotional world of animals and by what animals can teach us about ourselves.
Shame and Regret -- 21. Nog niet verschenen - reserveer een exemplaar bol. But now it gets tricky. I found this a soothing book to read before bed. Surprising, humbling, and filled with delight, this book shows us that animals think, feel, and know in much the same way as we do -- and that their lives are, to them, as precious as ours are to us. Really likable writing style, conversational and probably more accessible for those who don't usually enjoy nonfiction. Communities of trees will send sugar through their roots or through underground thread-like fungi to keep alive the stumps of felled individuals.
What are some of your current and future projects? The major message is: Have fun with nature! There's no science here, so don't go in expecting that. Just for Fun -- 16. Ravens call their friends by name, rats regret bad choices, and butterflies choose the very best places for their children to grow up. From the leafy forest floor to the inside of a bee hive, The Inner Life of Animals shows us microscopic levels of observation as well as forcing us to confront the big philosophical, ethical and scientific questions. They would never have made it without doing so. And at last we find out why wasps exist. There is no romanticization of nature--animals starve and do vicious things to one another-- but there is a stability and order which human beings are increasingly threatening.
I still felt I was on a robust learning curve as subjects as diverse as motherly love, gratitude, deception, desire, shame and knowledge of good and evil were explored one by one. They avoid disputes and large flocks and prefer to live in small groups of like-minded birds. Time is not on our side and being positive and working hard to give other animals the best lives possible has to be high on everyone's agenda as we move into the future. I highly recommend this book, as well as The Hidden Life of Trees, and I'm already looking forward to the third installment in the series. But Wohlleben must not see where the nut is hidden. He argues that animals have some humanlike qualities, regardless their shapes and sizes, experience unconscious brain activity directly related to how the animal interacts with the world.
Peter Wohlleben - miškininkas ir aistringas gamtos pasaulio mylėtojas. As others have mentioned, there are quite a few anecdotes mentioned throughout, but, also some scientific studies are referenced. An ability to celebrate small pleasures without constantly craving more? It's a mixture of both, and that's just how it is in every similar situation---probably even with us. Aus diesem Grund kann ich eine gewisse Voreingenommenheit für dieses Buch nicht leugnen. Pavyzdžiui, ar jūs žinojote, kad voverės minta ne vien riešutais ir sėklytėmis? But have you ever wondered what's going on in an animal's head? Buvo itin nemalonu skaityti apie tai, tačiau šiuo klausimu mudviejų su autoriumi nuomonė sutapo: kam išvis tokių bandymų reikia?! Nature is strong and still full of wonders which enrich our daily lives. My favorite by the end of the book was still the slime molds portion around page 35.
The richness of analyzing and understanding the behavior of animals and their emotional world comes from the diversity of explanations and the different academic and personal positions that can be found. In his new book, The Inner Life of Animals, he directs his attention to animal life, which is also little understood by mainstream society — the folks who spend most of their lives in climate controlled compartments. In his adult years, he has been a forest manager in Germany, continually striving to nurture the health of the land, and minimize harms. Hives of bees with insufficient honey for the winter will attack weaker hives, kill defenders, and swipe their stash. More and more researchers are realising that animals in fact experience a rich emotional life. Try reading some of this narration in the voice of Werner Hertzog.
