What Darwin said…
Although his theories were swimming in the counter current to all the assumptions of the time, in 1872, Charles Darwin argued in his book The Expression of Emotions in Animals and in Man the idea that emotions are not exclusively human; editing based on 30 years of observations made at the people and pets of different cultures.
Although they have been more than 100 years since the publication of the book in question, the feelings and the consciousness of animals continue to be a matter of curiosity for the science, since they are the key to understanding all sides of the evolution and complexity of living beings.
