    Peter Godfrey-Smith
    • £7.99
    • RRP £9.99
    • Save £2.00
    Philosopher Peter Godfrey-Smith's Other Minds: The Octopus and the Evolution of Intelligent Life was shortlisted for the Royal Society Science Book Prize and asks the question of what if intelligent life on Earth had evolved not once, but twice?

    This book tells a bold new story of how nature became aware of itself and focuses on the ocean - where animals first appeared. It describes how they evolved from unruly clumps of seaborne cells to the first evolved nervous systems in ancient relatives of jellyfish and then goes on to explore the incredible evolutionary journey of the cephalopods - revealing how they abandoned their shells and came above the waves in a journey completely independent from the route that mammals and birds would later take.

    Peter asks what kind of intelligence these cephalopods possess and considers how they evolved into octopuses - solitary creatures that have little in the way of social life but have great levels of intelligence. By going back to their roots and comparing them to our journey, this book casts new light on the mind of the octopus.
