Fish, mirrors, and a gradualist perspective on self-awareness

A critical review of methodology and interpretation of mirror self-recognition research in nonhuman primates.
TLDR
Proposals of hypotheses to account phylogenetically for the existence of inter- and intraspecies differences in mirror self-recognition are premature and before hypotheses such as these are advanced, the impact of rearing conditions on mirrorSelf- Recognition should be examined further.
