Alex & Me: How a Scientist and a Parrot Discovered a Hidden World of Animal Intelligence--and Formed a Deep Bond in the Process - Paperback

2009, ISBN: 0061673986

[SR: 21244], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780061673986], Harper Perennial, Harper Perennial, Book, [PU: Harper Perennial], 2009-09-01, Harper Perennial, A moving tribute that beautifully evokes the struggles, the initial triumphs, the setbacks, the unexpected and often stunning achievemnets ...[while] uncovering cognitive abilities in Alex that no one believed were possible.' Publishers Weekly On September 6, 2007, an African Grey parrot named Alex died prematurely at age thirty-one. His last words to his owner, Irene Pepperberg, were 'You be good. I love you'. What would normally be a quiet, very private event was, in Alex's case, headline news. Over the thirty years they had worked together, Alex and Irene had become famous - two pioneers who opened an unprecedented window into the hidden yet vast world of animal minds. Alex's brain was the size of a shelled walnut, and when Irene and Alex first met, birds were not believed to possess any potential for language, consciousness, or anything remotely comparable to human intelligence. Yet, over the years, Alex proved many things. He could add. He could sound out words. He understood concepts like bigger, smaller, more, fewer, and none. He was capable of thought and intention.Together, Alex and Irene uncovered a startling reality: We live in a world populated by thinking, conscious creatures. The fame that resulted was extraordinary. Yet there was a side to their relationship that never made the papers. They were emotionally connected to one another. They shared a deep bond far beyond science. Alex missed Irene when she was away. He was jealous when she paid attention to other parrots, or even people. He liked to show her who was boss. He loved to dance. He sometimes became bored by the repetition of his tests, and played jokes on her. Sometimes they sniped at each other. Yet nearly every day, they each said, 'I love you'. Alex and Irene stayed together through thick and thin - despite sneers from experts, extraordinary financial sacrifices, and a nomadic existence from one university to another.

ID: 9780061673986

How a Scientist and a Parrot Discovered a Hidden World of Animal Intelligence--and Formed a Deep Bond in the Process Of the 8 million parrots in the United States, none was more famous than Alex, the African grey who spent 30 years in the loving care of Dr. Irene Pepperberg until his untimely death in September, 2007. The public outpouring of grief over his loss was enormous, and global. Alex had become famous for his intelligence, learning over 100 words and many concepts, and even sounding out words and making logical leaps. But the full story of his relationship with Irene was a story of emotional ties - parrots mate for life, developing unique duets with their partners, exhibiting affection, jealousy, and craving attention. Alex did all this with Irene. His last words to her were `I love you, too. Youll be in tomorrow ` He passed away that night, the victim of heart failure. ALEX & ME is a story of adventure for both Irene and Alex. She was 28 when she bought Alex in a pet shop, a one-year-old parrot whose future was uncertain. They grew through their adulthoods together, as Irenes laboratory was moved from university to university, while she struggled to force the scientific world to take a `birdbrain` seriously. At age 8, Alex was coining new terms: he called an apple a `banerry` (combing cherry-red with banana, the fruit he knew best). At MIT, he loved to play games in the Media Lab, and he sulked when Irene didnt pay attention to him. He also showered her with attention and affection: if she grew agitated, he would tell her to `calm down.` When he awoke from a surgery, his first words were `wanna go,` so they could return to his home together. ALEX & ME is ultimately a book about the universal truths of relationships, just as much as an astonishing scientific journey.
