Does biology condemn the human species to violence and war Previous studies of animal behavior incline us to answer yes but the message of this book is considerably more optimistic Without denying our heritage of aggressive behavior Frans de Waal describes powerful checks and balances in the makeup of our closest animal relatives and in so doing he shows that to humans making peace is as natural as making war br br In this meticulously researched and absorbing account we learn in detail how different types of simians cope with aggression and how they make peace after fights Chimpanzees for instance reconcile with a hug and a kiss whereas rhesus monkeys groom the fur of former adversaries By objectively examining the dynamics of primate social interactions de Waal makes a convincing case that confrontation should not be viewed as a barrier to sociality but rather as an unavoidable element upon which social relationships can be built and strengthened through reconciliation br br The author examines five different species chimpanzees rhesus monkeys stump tailed monkeys bonobos and humans and relates anecdotes culled from exhaustive observations that convey the intricacies and refinements of simian behavior Each species utilizes its own unique peacemaking strategies The bonobo for example is little known to science and even less to the general public but this rare ape maintains peace by means of sexual behavior divorced from reproductive functions sex occurs in all possible combinations and positions whenever social tensions need to be resolved Make love not war could be the bonobo slogan br br De Waal s demonstration of reconciliation in both monkeys and apes strongly supports his thesis that forgiveness and peacemaking are widespread among nonhuman primates an aspect of primate societies that should stimulate much needed work on human conflict resolution, 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, In this lively and illuminating discussion of his landmark research esteemed primatologist Frans de Waal argues that human morality is not imposed from above but instead comes from within Moral behavior does not begin and end with religion but is in fact a product of evolution br br For many years de Waal has observed chimpanzees soothe distressed neighbors and bonobos share their food Now he delivers fascinating fresh evidence for the seeds of ethical behavior in primate societies that further cements the case for the biological origins of human fairness Interweaving vivid tales from the animal kingdom with thoughtful philosophical analysis de Waal seeks a bottom up explanation of morality that emphasizes our connection with animals In doing so de Waal explores for the first time the implications of his work for our understanding of modern religion Whatever the role of religious moral imperatives he sees it as a Johnny come lately role that emerged only as an addition to our natural instincts for cooperation and empathy br br But unlike the dogmatic neo atheist of his book s title de Waal does not scorn religion per se Instead he draws on the long tradition of humanism exemplified by the painter Hieronymus Bosch and asks reflective readers to consider these issues from a positive perspective What role if any does religion play for a well functioning society today And where can believers and nonbelievers alike find the inspiration to lead a good life br br Rich with cultural references and anecdotes of primate behavior em The Bonobo and the Atheist em engagingly builds a unique argument grounded in evolutionary biology and moral philosophy Ever a pioneering thinker de Waal delivers a heartening and inclusive new perspective on human nature and our struggle to find purpose in our lives, 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
