Article: Animal Intelligence Has Been Widely Underestimated, Says Primatologist Frans De Waal
The Washington Post spreading primitivist ideas:
We are not as special as we think we are. Human arrogance led us to believe we are hovering far above nature, which we now see as dangerous, dirty and dumb, when in fact we are no more special than hummingbirds, squid and orcas. We are but one species among million others, and if we want to keep on living on this planet, we have to behave like one.
Frans De Waal is an amazing author (I like him because he wrote at length about bonobos), everyone interested in this kind of stuff should check out some of his works.
