Animals I 131
Animal/Animal Experiments/Behavior/Frith: we know nothing about the experience of the animals, we can only observe their behavior.
---
I 228
Learning/Imitation/Animal/Frith: also in animals there is learning by imitation: E.g. mountain gorillas show their offspring, how nettles are folded inside, in order not to bring the hairs into contact with the lips.
Animal: Difference to humans: the gorillas show no interest in encouraging their offspring to learn. They also show little interest in what their offspring does at all.
Learning/Human/Child/Frith: the baby knows when its mother is interested in it. When an object is dropped and the mother says "shit!", the baby does not draw the conclusion that this is a word for the object.
