It s interesting if one gets a score of over 90 percent or even let s just say hm 988 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 12 percent are the difference between you and a sh trhowing chimpanzee the person goes like WTF and so on So as I always say we are naked apes and each emotional and brain reaction that is explored in monkeys gives deep insights into our collective and individual nature The knowledge could lead to a better social design from international organizations to small villages with just a hand full of houses Checklists are great so let s put monkeys vs humans on a kind of partner finding match list with the same interest Violent without reason against the own people which harms the whole society Check Manipulate and lie around anything that comes just a mile close so some sexy time Done The tendency to despotism genocide and determination wars Getting closer to a full match Same emotional reactions concerning love fear hate etc Got it monkey owned Excuse me but could someone please explain the difference to me again I mean even the throwing sh3 thing seems to be matching be it verbally or in some rare cases ahemBoth the neurological and social development are so closely related that the functioning systems kept growing inside our heads and got probably a little bit modified regarding impulse control subtleness and intelligence but nature didn t change much in this running system Take away food shelter and punishment and we are again where we were millions of years ago extremely dangerous group raiders with an integrated attitude to madness This is especially funny because there are no lesser intelligent animals especially biological very similar mammals that have the same rate of lunatics that naturally occur because something like a human brain can t be constructed or civilized without some damage When there are millions of rabbits deer mice or cows their behavioral anomalies are so few compared to when one puts a few million people together in one placeOne implication is that like bonobos and chimpanzees human society has different attitudes depending on the social structure And as both humans and monkeys keep evolving many new variants may grow out of the few concepts with the main difference that humans could form an environment for many experiments and plentiful family and social structures instead of the few monocultures we see today With each acceptable ideology that doesn t include harming discriminating or erasing other groups many experiments would be possible with volunteer groups of environmentalists futurists etc that want to try out something new How to prevent them from going the way of sects and extremists might be a tricky topic but at least the indoctrinated way of how to live would fall apartA huge misuse of anthropomorphism has been the tendency to think that we great humans should project our superior properties onto other lower animals instead of considering that it might be that many animals are much smarter complex and emotional than we thought or wanted to think Just because human communication got overcomplicated with language mimics and stuff that doesn t mean that communications that are based on smell varying sounds or just hormones aren t as good effective and a sign of higher intelligence instead of just instincts as thought for a long time With the help of neuroscience and biological markers the truth can be shown Tragically the bad and wrong science of the past was used to discriminate animals and other humans that were both deemed inferiorThe work is primarily focused on apes but let s think about other animals for instance pigs cows and chicken or if they are on the dinner table and the imagination is too irritating dolphins octopi crows well anything that has the intelligence and or social life to feel And here comes the cornucopia of ethical philosophical and sociological uestions regarding both our connection to and behavior regarding many animals Let s say a scientist would find out or has already found out a long time ago that especially the tortured animals in the meat factories have not just complex feelings and higher intelligence than supposed but understand the whole context of their situation at each momentThe work of this outstanding author should be read and spread by everybody because it opens new interdisciplinary fields of both natural sciences and humanities and leads to a better understanding of both real and human nature and could help to stop repeating the construction errors and behaving like aggressive alpha males after a few million years of a wild human adolescence and become adult and wise insteadFinally let s try a self test that is prooving all theories right Look I made this funny for the sake of your mental sanity censored list of emotions that would completely control me with full intensity if I wouldn t be such a highly developed smart super duper alpha predator meditation and mindfulness really help a tiny little bit bored stressed happy hungry evil scared tired excited hungry again dishonest sensitiveA wiki walk can be as refreshing to the mind as a walk through nature in this completely overrated real life outside books

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 acuaintance might have wished Particularly disturbing to me was seeing the macaues gorillas chimpanzees and other primates When my friend sensed that I was not happy to see them despite my love of bonobos and chimpanzees in particular I explained how sad it was to see these profoundly social animals with intricate friendship and family bonds be isolated by themselves in a small cage In Mama s Last Hug Frans De Waal doesn t go deeply into how zoos are problematic he does briefly touch on it but he does ask and defend the uestion as to whether primates in particular are capable of emotions If you ve read De Waal before you are probably familiar with his answer but here he uses his and others research as well as entertaining and fascinating anecdotes to answer that he believes they do He gives wonderful examples of a wide variety of facial expressions that correlate with our own our facial structures are remarkably similar how primates feel and show shame bargain amongst themselves and others he cites macaues at a temple of Bali who often steal particular items such as cell phones from tourists Rather than run away with them the monkeys sit a safe distance away until the tourists hands over a sufficient amount of food at which point the monkey will put down the valuables and walk away with its bounty In his perhaps most touching story De Waal recounts the story of Mama a female chimp who was the alpha female for decades at the colony De Waal supervised in Holland As she became sick and near death one of the staff members who had been with her for years went into her cage to say goodbye a uite dangerous thing to do and one that he freely admitted later he would never do with any other chimp Mama on seeing and clearly remembering their relationship over the years gave him a long hug as if to say goodbye that can been seen on Youtube highly recommended you have some kleenex handy Was she aware of her impending death Maybe Maybe not But even the most hardened cynic would have to admit that there was at a bare minimum recognition on her part and likely warmth that we as humans like to assign solely to ourselves Why do so many scientists still refuse to acknowledge that beings other than humans are capable of complex emotions Is it that it would complicate experimentation on them Make eating them extremely problematic We do not know for sure De Waal writes we cannot ask animals directly what they are feeling This is undoubtedly true And yet through simple observation it is increasingly difficult to deny they are feeling something intensely recognizable and universal to all living beings

Frans de Waal s latest book Mama s Last Hug Animal and Human Emotions is a survey of various emotions what they are when they arise and how they are identified in both animals and humans Each chapter covers a different set of emotions or concepts related to them such as emotional intelligence and sentience described with a plentiful assortment of de Waal s firsthand anecdotes from his decades studying primates as well as summaries of other scientific publications In short he asserts and with much credible evidence that not only do animals have rich emotional lives but they very much parallel that of humans Anyone who has a pet at home perhaps will shrug at why this is such a big deal Like other people who own pets I m no stranger to describing the behavior of my cats in emotional terms they become mopey and depressed when my suitcases come out and they know I m going to be gone for a while when I come home from work or a trip they re ecstatic to see me they get frustrated when their food or water dish has been empty too long etc This is just what the average person tends to do and we don t think twice about it The thing is scientific reasoning has discredited this for ages as anthropomorphism and the topic gets a nice overview early on in Mama s Last Hug which has long been the silly foolish thing humans do that s just plain nonsense As Frans de Waal and other scientists have worked hard to prove over the years this is actually not the case Hard irrefutable scientific evidence is now coming out to show that we humans are not on a magnificent pedestal above the rest of the animal kingdom after all Advances in neuroscience and a growing awareness of and accounting for once ignored variables in experimental data like social animals being tested in isolation versus in a social environment or the very distinct differences in rat behavior when lab technicians are male or female have only shown that we humans are far similar to the rest of the animals than we are dissimilar Turns out we humans aren t actually bad at correctly assessing the emotional states of animals eitherPersonally I devoured this book as uickly as I could I ve highlighted so many passages and discussed the stories and conclusions with anyone that will listen I ve always been endlessly fascinated with where scientists are going with their studies of emotions and usually find myself skimming some psychology publications just for fun In fact I even participated in research myself partly to see how experiments were run partly to get a free MRI of my brain why not But I always come away from it all a bit perplexed by the over reliance on linguistics A brain scan and one s body languagefacial expressions will always depict what one s emotions are regardless of what they may say to the contrary Further humans simply have a tendency to not understand their own emotions or at the very least struggle to communicate them in a way that s fully understood from one person to the next if they aren t outright lying about what their emotions are Language is an abstraction over the complicated mess contained within Sure I can tell you something made me sad with my fancy human language skills but do you really know what I experience if you can t see my expressions or behavior Mama s Last Hug has made me think rather deeply about what really does differentiate us from the other animals on our planet I ve never uestioned if animals are actually clever or if they have emotions and by extension feelings but I didn t uite realize just how tremendously much we share until finishing this book When I look at my species I see our differences from the other species on this planet in our artistic works and creative endeavors But in uniuely human traits I also see a dark side an endless appetite for destruction and a capacity for doubting uestioning and ultimately ignoring our own emotions as if they were somehow not an intricate part of us The capability for empathy and self sacrifice isn t uniuely human instead it is a life preserving tendency shared amongst most if not all animals There is life giving life preserving wisdom in what we ve long considered primitive or basic and it stares right back at us when we slow down long enough to really see our animal cousins and what they innately know and do that we so readily resist I couldn t recommend Mama s Last Hug Animal and Human Emotions by Frans de Waal enough From the wonderful stories of observed animal emotions to the thoughtfulness spurred regarding how we treat animals and how we think about ourselves there s a lot of to be gained from reading this book It was delightful to read and I am looking forward to reading Frans de Waal s prior works as well I received an advance reading copy from the publisher W W Norton
