Frans de Waal | The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates

Drawing on a wealth of pioneering research, esteemed primatologist Frans de Waal traces the biological roots of human morality to primate social emotions, including empathy, reciprocity, and fairness in The Bonobo and the Atheist. Named one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People, he is the C. H. Candler Professor in Emory University’s Psychology Department. His many works include Our Inner Ape, Chimpanzee Politics: Power and Sex among Apes, and The Age of Empathy: Nature's Lessons for a Kinder Society. Dr. de Waal is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences, and directs the Living Links at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center.
