About "Thinking" of animals
Do (non-human) animals "think"? Or do humans "think" that (on-human) animals "think"?
I would like to start with this special question, which has far-reaching implications: I am talking about the use of the word "think" which is frequently used not only in popular scientific publications (e.g. film documentaries) - but as well as in scentific biological and philosophical publications.
That is the reason why I want to focus on the latter, because, if even philosophy and science still use the word in an unclear and misleading manner, it is of course not surprising that popular scientific media follow.
