    "It's the animal in us," we often hear when we've been bad. But why not when we're good? Primates and Philosophers tackles this question by exploring the biological foundations of one of humanity's most valued traits: morality.In this provocative book, primatologist Frans de Waal argues that modern-day evolutionary biology takes far too dim a view of the natural world, emphasizing our "selfish" genes.

    What made the experience of listening to Primates and Philosophers the most enjoyable?

    This is a very thought provoking book. It builds a very strong case that human ethics developed from primate


    Would you recommend Primates and Philosophers to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, if they like to think.


    Did Alan Sklar do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    It was a little dry. Could have used different voices for different philosophers.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. I disagree with the conclusions of de Waal. Regardless valuable read for anyone who wants to better understand evolutions place in the role of ethics and morality.
