LETTERS TO THE EDITORS

Questions and Answers

To the Editors:

I found it interesting that in one issue of American Scientist (March–April 2012), Colin Allen’s review of the book Mindreading Animals explored the question, “Can a chimpanzee understand what another sees?” and an In the News item helped answer it. The latter summarized an article from Current Biology in which observational evidence from Uganda suggested that chimpanzees recognize and try to combat ignorance among their companions. I was glad to see a question about theory of mind answered by field biology. Thanks for editing a great magazine!
