Frans de Waal explores both the scope and the depth of animal intelligence. He offers a firsthand account of how science has stood traditional behaviorism on its head by revealing how smart animals really are, and how we’ve underestimated their abilities for too long. during the lecture, we’ll follow chimpanzees and bonobos, as well as crows, dolphins, parrots, sheep, wasps, bats or whales.
