Morality R Us

Dear all my best friends,

I told you so.



Frans de Waal: Moral behavior in animals

“Empathy, cooperation, fairness and reciprocity — caring about the well-being of others seems like a very human trait. But Frans de Waal shares some surprising videos of behavioral tests, on primates and other mammals, that show how many of these moral traits all of us share.”

Ted Talk: Frans de Waal studies primate social behavior — how they fight and reconcile, share and cooperate.

One thought on “Morality R Us

  1. That’s not surprising. I’ve seen ferrets care for sick cage mates. Ferrets squabble, then make up and play again. Etc. Dogs and wolves are very “pack” oriented.
