strong A em New York Times em Bestseller Astonishing has the makings of a classic and one fantastic read em People em strong br br What separates your mind from an animal s Maybe you think it s your ability to design tools your sense of self or your grasp of past and future all traits that have helped us define ourselves as the planet s preeminent species But in recent decades these claims have eroded or even been disproven outright by a revolution in the study of animal cognition Take the way octopuses use coconut shells as tools elephants that classify humans by age gender and language or Ayumu the young male chimpanzee at Kyoto University whose flash memory puts that of humans to shame Based on research involving crows dolphins parrots sheep wasps bats whales and of course chimpanzees and bonobos Frans de Waal explores both the scope and the depth of animal intelligence He offers a firsthand account of how science has stood traditional behaviorism on its head by revealing how smart animals really are and how we ve underestimated their abilities for too long br br People often assume a cognitive ladder from lower to higher forms with our own intelligence at the top But what if it is more like a bush with cognition taking different forms that are often incomparable to ours Would you presume yourself dumber than a squirrel because you re less adept at recalling the locations of hundreds of buried acorns Or would you judge your perception of your surroundings as more sophisticated than that of a echolocating bat De Waal reviews the rise and fall of the mechanistic view of animals and opens em our em minds to the idea that animal minds are far more intricate and complex than we have assumed De Waal s landmark work will convince you to rethink everything you thought you knew about animal and human intelligence, An important and timely message about the biological roots of human kindness br Desmond Morris author of i The Naked Ape i br br Are we our brothers keepers Do we have an instinct for compassion Or are we as is often assumed only on earth to serve our own survival and interests In this thought provoking book the acclaimed author of i Our Inner Ape i examines how empathy comes naturally to a great variety of animals including humans br br By studying social behaviors in animals such as bonding the herd instinct the forming of trusting alliances expressions of consolation and conflict resolution Frans de Waal demonstrates that animals and humans are preprogrammed to reach out He has found that chimpanzees care for mates that are wounded by leopards elephants offer reassuring rumbles to youngsters in distress and dolphins support sick companions near the water s surface to prevent them from drowning From day one humans have innate sensitivities to faces bodies and voices we ve been designed to feel for one another br br De Waal s theory runs counter to the assumption that humans are inherently selfish which can be seen in the fields of politics law and finance and which seems to be evidenced by the current greed driven stock market collapse But he cites the public s outrage at the U S government s lack of empathy in the wake of Hurricane Katrina as a significant shift in perspective one that helped Barack Obama become elected and ushered in what may well become an Age of Empathy Through a better understanding of empathy s survival value in evolution de Waal suggests we can work together toward a more just society based on a more generous and accurate view of human nature br br Written in layman s prose with a wealth of anecdotes wry humor and incisive intelligence i The Age of Empathy i is essential reading for our embattled times, p It s the animal in us we often hear when we ve been bad But why not when we re good i Primates and Philosophers i tackles this question by exploring the biological foundations of one of humanity s most valued traits morality p p In this provocative book primatologist Frans de Waal argues that modern day evolutionary biology takes far too dim a view of the natural world emphasizing our selfish genes Science has thus exacerbated our reciprocal habits of blaming nature when we act badly and labeling the good things we do as humane Seeking the origin of human morality not in evolution but in human culture science insists that we are moral by choice not by nature p p Citing remarkable evidence based on his extensive research of primate behavior de Waal attacks Veneer Theory which posits morality as a thin overlay on an otherwise nasty nature He explains how we evolved from a long line of animals that care for the weak and build cooperation with reciprocal transactions Drawing on both Darwin and recent scientific advances de Waal demonstrates a strong continuity between human and animal behavior In the process he also probes issues such as anthropomorphism and human responsibilities toward animals p p Based on the Tanner Lectures de Waal delivered at Princeton University s Center for Human Values in i Primates and Philosophers i includes responses by the philosophers Peter Singer Christine M Korsgaard and Philip Kitcher and the science writer Robert Wright They press de Waal to clarify the differences between humans and other animals yielding a lively debate that will fascinate all those who wonder about the origins and reach of human goodness br br The University Center for Human Values Series p, What if apes had their own culture rather than an imposed human version What if they reacted to situations with behavior learned through observation of their elders culture rather than with pure genetically coded instinct nature In answering these questions eminent primatologist Frans de Waal corrects our arrogant assumption that humans are the only creatures to have made the leap from the natural to the cultural domain The book s title derives from an analogy de Waal draws between the way behavior is transmitted in ape society and the way sushi making skills are passed down from sushi master to apprentice Like the apprentice young apes watch their group mates at close range absorbing the methods and lessons of each of their elders actions Responses long thought to be instinctive are actually learned behavior de Waal argues and constitute ape culture A delightful mix of intriguing anecdote rigorous clinical study adventurous field work and fascinating speculation i The Ape and the Sushi Master i shows that apes are not human caricatures but members of our extended family with their own resourcefulness and dignity
