Moral Behavior in Other Animals
Primatologist Frans de Waal shares some of his research providing scientific evidence that non-human animals have empathy, co-operate, and understand reciprocity and fairness.
This research demonstrates that non-humans have values comparable to those of humans.
The capuchin who sees and reacts when he is cheated by the human shows that ethical reasoning is not unique to humans.
People are animals, and animals are people too.
How do you want to treat them?
