    As a student, realizing that my biology books were of little help explaining chimpanzee behavior, I picked up a copy of Machiavelli s The Prince It offered an insightful, unadorned account of human behavior based on real life observations of the Borgias, the Medici, and the popes The book put me in the right frame of mind to write about ape politics a

    It s interesting, if one gets a score of over 90 percent or even, let s just say, hm 98,8 percent, the person would say that this is close to absolute No matter if it is a test, a comparison or whatever But as soon as it goes like You know, those missing 1,2 percent are the difference between you and a sh trhowing chimpanzee, the person goes like WTF and so o

    Animal emotions Human emotions Can they, in any way share commanalties The author makes a convincing and illuminating arguement, that yes they can, and they can also tell us much about ourselves He shares the relationship between various chimp behaviors, the emotions they have and how they are shown in various situations While most of the book cover this group, their

    Frans DeWaal is a primatologist who has studied animal emotions for decades This fascinating book explores the rich emotional lives of animals Relating observations and laboratory experiments we are told of emotions found not only in primates, but rats, moles, and fish Due to a lack of language in these groups at least a language humans understand , science has been skeptical about the exis

    I recently went to the zoo at the behest of a friend of mine I hadn t been to a proper zoo since I was a child and was reminded why I hadn t been in such a long time Animals in small enclosures, appearing listless with nothing to stimulate them, was for me the opposite of entertaining It was profoundly moving but not perhaps in the sense that my acquaintance might have wished Particularly disturbin

    An engaging examination of primate emotions though, de Waal carefully distinguishes these from feelings and social constructs and what they teach us about human emotions and interactions Every now and then it seems his analogies oversimplify human reactions ex he compared Bonobo female reproductive jealousy to the majority of women who chose Obama over the McCain Palin ticket, which of course disregards th

    Frans de Waal is one of that generation of biologists who, when starting in their field, had to struggle with an intellectual climateor less opposed on principle to thinking about the inner lives or emotions of animals Like Jane Goodall who violated norms by naming, rather than numbering, the chimpanzees she was observing , he was somewhat of a revolutionary for advocating the patently obvious position that humans
