Kindred Beings

Sheri Speede, Founder, In Defense of Animals–Africa (IDA-Africa); Author, Kindred Beings; Veterinarian

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.
