    As a student, realizing that my biology books were of little help explaining chimpanzee behavior, I picked up a copy of Machiavelli s The Prince It offered an insightful, unadorned account of human behavior based on real life observations of the Borgias, the Medici, and the popes The book put me in the right frame of mind to write about ape politics at the zoo We know our own inner states imperfectly and often mi

    Frans de Waal s latest book, Mama s Last Hug Animal and Human Emotions, is a survey of various emotions what they are, when they arise, and how they are identified in both animals and humans Each chapter covers a different set of emotions or concepts related to them, such as emotional intelligence and sentience, described with a plentiful assortment of de Waal s firsthand anecdotes from his decades studying primates

    Frans DeWaal is a primatologist who has studied animal emotions for decades This fascinating book explores the rich emotional lives of animals Relating observations and laboratory experiments we are told of emotions found not only in primates, but rats, moles, and fish Due to a lack of language in these groups at least a language humans understand , science has been skeptical about the existence of emotions They can t tell us when t

    Educational, entertaining, enlightening, evidentiary de Waal is devoted to his subject both intellectually and emotionally, and once you ve read the book, you might believe as I do that that s the same fidelity It took me all of the book to grasp that emotions are not feelings, and it s taken the behaviorist, psychologist, biologist schools decades to sort it as well We and this we perhaps has an arrow pointed at American studies for the perpetuation of this mis

    I recently went to the zoo at the behest of a friend of mine I hadn t been to a proper zoo since I was a child and was reminded why I hadn t been in such a long time Animals in small enclosures, appearing listless with nothing to stimulate them, was for me the opposite of entertaining It was profoundly moving but not perhaps in the sense that my acquaintance might have wished Particularly disturbing to me was seeing the macaques, gorillas, chimpanzees, and other primates
