Mama’s Last Hug: Animal Emotions and What They Teach Us about Ourselves by Waal, Frans de


Out of Stock

ISBN: 9781783784110 Category: Tags: , ,


THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLLER In this groundbreaking and entertaining book primatologist Frans de Waal draws on his renowned studies of the social and emotional lives of chimpanzees bonobos and other primates and personal encounters with many other species to illuminate new ideas and findings about animal emotions. Opening with the moving farewell between Mama a dying chimpanzee matriarch and her human friend – the video of which has been watched by millions online – Mama’s Last Hug illustrates how profoundly we have underestimated animals’ emotional experiences. De Waal’s radical proposal is that emotions are like organs: humans haven’t a single organ that other animals don’t have and the same can be said of our emotions.
