Currently, there is a rising interest about debates on cognitive differences and similaties between man and animals. Some researchers, based on anthropocentristic approaches, highlight the diffrences; some others do the same with similarities. the way the debate is approached if has connotations on philosophy,especifically on mind philosophy .we will focus on some of the most well-known simililarities on cognitive ethology studies and itis philosophy, secondly, I´ll talk about the most important feature of “mind theory” , just like the way it was conceived initially, then the on-going origins of this and it´s relation with social behavior; finally I´ll state the theory of “intentional strategy “ the way it was developed by Daniel Dennett and it´s relation with thought.
