Face to Apes

On Topic
Frans de Waal: Great Apes and the Gift of Empathy
Biologist-primatologist-author Frans de Waal does a lot of thinking about empathy, particularly empathy across the animal kingdom. For our May “Monologue,” de Waal spoke to us about animals' complex empathetic behaviors, giving several heart-swelling examples from the chimp societies he studies. (His thoughts offer a little bit of hope for us more advanced apes, too.) 
 


More tales from the adorable to the deplorable from the animal world, our theme this month on Topic.com.
