In captivity, octopuses have been known to identify individual human keepers, raid neighboring tanks for food, turn off lights, deliberately plug drains, and make daring escapes. A philosopher of science as well as an accomplished scuba diver, Godfrey-Smith traces the evolution of the cephalopods and their particular development of self-awareness, throwing revelatory light on the octopus mind—and on our own.
