"Czy zwierzęta mają uczucia?"

Translation:Do animals have emotions?

May 9, 2016



Tak, oni mają :) na przykład szczury, psy, koty, owce i świnie have been shown to have cognitive biases according to english wikipedia. Also I read from some paper that ryby czują strach i ból. :( So that's at least something to answer the question :)


If they exhibit boredom and spontaneous play deriving therefrom, they do.

What is the difference between feeling and emotion?


In English? Emotions are feelings which are mental states, such as sadness, fear, anger, and happiness. The word "feeling" includes emotions, as well as physical sensations such as cold, pain, nausea, and the way that an object feels when you touch it (such as roughness or softness). However, the word "feeling" does not include sights, sounds, smells, or tastes.


Feelings are about body, emotions are about mind.


That doesn't seem right to me, I'd say both are (or at least 'can' in terms of 'feelings') be about the mind...


Simple chemicals


To a large degree you are right. Part of my daughter's doctoral research concerned chemical changes in the blood related to emotions in dogs, cats, and humans.


Oczywiście, że mają.
