This chapter considers the ability of animal reasoning in terms of cause-effect relations. It first discusses Lloyd Morgan's canon and parsimony as they relate to animal behavior. It then discusses studies on cause-effect learning by animals. Finally, the chapter emphasizes the need for better understanding of learning and behavior that goes beyond respondent and operant conditioning for animals.
