A controversial but highly valuable work from the legendary cetologist and founder of the Communications Research Institute John Lilly.

In The Mind of the Dolphin, Lilly asks and explores what studying the lives, cultures, and most prominently the manners of communication of another species can teach us about our own human species. Joining him in his study is Margaret Howe, a naturalist famous for living alongside a dolphin for two months – a period during which she attempted to teach him English.

This book documents the conception, research processes, and later reflections on this radical attempt at expanding our understanding of ourselves through others.

Soft cover with black and white photographs and illustrations throughout.

Edition: 1973 reprint of the 1967 original.
