No description available, 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, In this revised edition de Waal expands and updates his story of the Arnhem colony of chimpanzees De Waal reminds readers through his account of the chimps sexual rivalries and coalitions and intelligent rather than instinctual actions that the roots of politics are older than humanity, This remarkable primate with the curious name is challenging established views on human evolution The bonobo least known of the great apes is a female centered egalitarian species that has been dubbed the make love not war primate by specialists In bonobo society females form alliances to intimidate males sexual behavior in virtually every partner combination replaces aggression and serves many social functions and unrelated groups mingle instead of fighting The species s most striking achievement is not tool use or warfare but sensitivity to others br br In the first book to combine and compare data from captivity and the field Frans de Waal a world renowned primatologist and Frans Lanting an internationally acclaimed wildlife photographer present the most up to date perspective available on the bonobo Focusing on social organization de Waal compares the bonobo with its better known relative the chimpanzee The bonobo s relatively nonviolent behavior and the tendency for females to dominate males confront the evolutionary models derived from observing the chimpanzee s male power politics cooperative hunting and intergroup warfare Further the bonobo s frequent imaginative sexual contacts along with its low reproduction rate belie any notion that the sole natural purpose of sex is procreation Humans share over percent of their genetic material with the bonobo and the chimpanzee Is it possible that the peaceable bonobo has retained traits of our common ancestor that we find hard to recognize in ourselves br br Eight superb full color photo essays offer a rare view of the bonobo in its native habitat in the rain forests of Zaire as well as in zoos and research facilities Additional photographs and highlighted interviews with leading bonobo experts complement the text This book points the way to viable alternatives to male based models of human evolution and will add considerably to debates on the origin of our species Anyone interested in primates gender issues evolutionary psychology and exceptional wildlife photography will find a fascinating companion in i Bonobo The Forgotten Ape i
