Extracts from this document...

Introduction

In What Way Does the Biological Constitution of a Living Organism Determine, Influence or Limit its Perception? There are an uncountable number of living things, most of which are not discovered yet. Human, is known to be the most intelligent, most developed and most social of all. What's more, we say that human has the most ability to perceive things in the correct way, because he is the most biologically-developed living thing. By the way, does the biological constitution really affect perception? We, human beings, can differentiate colours whereas a dog cannot. It doesn't matter for a dog if it had a green or brown collar with same design. A second example can be given about the elephants. ...read more.

My father died in his 150s!" Up until now, I just mentioned about the animals and human, but there are other kingdoms of living things: monera, protists, fungi and plants. Nevertheless, it seems impossible to talk about their nature of perception. The only thing we can say is that they do not have perception. As far as we know, they can not think because they don't have brains or another structure which can do the work of brain and nervous system. As a conclusion, yes, the biological constitution of living organisms affects their perception.
