Arguments that animals possess an emotional life are often dismissed as sentimental anthropomorphism.

This book challenges that notion by proposing that the objective scientific evidence for human emotions is all but non-existent.

Thus, if the whole of our human psychological understanding rests on reflective inferences, why are the same criteria considered invalid for animals?
