Russell on Thinking and Humans and Dogs

“I do not know whether dogs can think, or what thinking is, or whether human beings can think. But whether human beings can think or not, I know that those who love dogs think that dogs can think. This, I am afraid, is the sum total of my contribution to human knowledge on this important subject.”

-Bertrand Russell from “Do Dogs Think?” ( 15 June 1932), p. 181-182.
