Emotion in animals
Do you believe that animals experience emotion...specifically emotion as humans do/would define emotion?
Personally, while I believe that non-human animals have their own version of emotion, I don't believe it is the same as human emotion. Why? Because non-human animals have non-human neurology, non-human brains, and non-human hormonal make-up...these two things are at the root of emotion. So yes, I think non-human animals have emotions...but in their own way, not in the way we would describe.
