Alexandra Horowitz: A Dog's World

A Dog's World with Alexandra Horowitz - Conversations with History

Alexandra Horowitz, Adjunct Associate Professor Barnard College, Columbia University.


Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Professor Alexandra Horowitz for a discussion of her book, Inside of a Dog. Professor Horowitz discusses her formative experiences, her interest in cognition in animals, and what led her to focus on dogs. In her analysis, understanding dogs requires consideration of wolf ancestry, cognitive skills and anatomy, and the ways in which dogs interact with humans and how that interaction has affected their evolution.

KEYWORDS: Psychology.
