Clever Hans – A Horse Who Could Solve Maths

Most of us dread maths. There is a striking story of a horse named Clever Hans who was trained by a psychologist named Wilhelm Von Osten. He was taught to do many things like :

  • Tell the time
  • Tell the dates of past and coming days.
  • Identify music notes ( because his master was a musician as well ).
  • Understand the German language.
  • And also solve some problems in Mathematics.

This is really mindblowing. This demonstrated that many mammals have sharp intellectual abilities.
