Through The Looking Glass
Mirror And Self-consciousStreaming Video - 2006
When do humans develop self-consciousness and recognition of others as separate beings? Do these psychological advancements occur differently in animals? Many scientists think so, using the most advanced of scientific equipment to base their conclusions: the common mirror. This engaging and sometimes surprising documentary builds a case for the mirror's role in determining the stages of psychological progress in humans and animals. Field experiments conducted by Jim Anderson, researcher in psychology at Sterling University in Scotland, illustrate how the mirror's secrets teach much about the intelligence of the animal world.
