In 1970, on the publication of the first volume of Konrad Lorenz’s collected papers, Science magazine commented, “Konrad Lorenz, who so delighted the world with King Solomon’s Ring and Man Meets Dog, and then frightened it with On Aggression, now makes available to the English-reading public the major papers of his scientific work.” These volumes “will allow a much better appreciation and assessment of Lorenz’s controversial ideas about animal and human behavior.” The papers in Volume II include comparative studies of the motor patterns of Anatinae, part and parcel in animal and human societies, psychology and phylogeny, methods of approach to the problems of behavior, Gestalt perception as a source of scientific knowledge, and whether animals possess powers of subjective experience.
