This book is very informative about autism. It gave me a lot to think about. I don't 100% agree, but I don't suppose she'd find that surprising.

Temple has a unique pov on animal behavior but it really makes sense. Her goal is to give animals the best lives and the easiest deaths. The goal is to activate the positive aspects of their personalities without activating their negative emotions. It requires being aware of how the world looks like to them -- not how we think it looks to them. This could require a rewiring of our pov and our own assumptions.

From Britannica.com: Author, Temple Grandin, "is an American scientist and industrial designer whose own experience with autism funded her professional work in creating systems to counter stress in certain human and animal populations.

Grandin was unable to talk at age three and exhibited many behavioral problems; she was later diagnosed with autism. Her parents, rejecting a doctor’s advice to place her in an institution, instead sent their daughter to a series of private schools where her high IQ was nurtured. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree (1970) in psychology from Franklin Pierce College (now Franklin Pierce University) in New Hampshire, she earned a master’s degree (1975) and a doctorate (1989) in animal science from Arizona State University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, respectively. From 1990 she taught animal science at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, where she also managed Grandin Livestock Systems."… (mais)
