June 14, 2001 • Posted in Suggested Reading,Related ethical issues

Stanford, Craig; New York: Basic Books, 2001

Renowned primatologist, Craig Stanford, co-director of the Jane Goodall Primate Research Centre, writes about the continuum between humanity and great apes, arguing that our differences are of degree, not of kind. As the author writes in his preface, an exploration of the recent discoveries of cognitive functions, emotions, social culture of great apes will “force a re-examination of what it means to be human.”
