2347. Human intelligence

I think it was a mistake that is costing us  -homo economicus –  to see humans as different and obviously superior from animals because of intelligence, and then making intelligence more important than other animal qualities such as caring and playfulness. 

Second, so many commentators treat human intelligence as the upper limit of animal intelligence. This is clearly wrong as animals are in many ways  relative to their environments much more accomplished than we are.
