Kindred Beings

With Sheri Speede

Monday Night Philosophy explores the patterns of emotion and thought of our fellow primates, chimpanzees, as seen by one of their human interpreters. Speede helped found a forest sanctuary in Cameroon for captive chimpanzees and, by living for more than a decade with those she rescued, came to understand their emotional complexity, giving her insights into human as well as chimpanzee psychology. Reality or anthropomorphism? That is tonight’s question.
