The Bonobo and the Atheist
Rev. Clare Petersberger
Steve Maslen recently shared with me Frans de Waal's book by this title. Frans de Waal is a primatologist who has spent his career studying chimpanzees and bonobos --- two of humanity’s closest living relatives. His research has lead him to challenge the misunderstanding of Darwinism that the entire natural world is a merciless struggle for survival. He illustrates that other social animals display empathy, altruism, gratitude, and cooperation. How does this transform our understanding of what it means to be human and "humane?" What role does religion have in helping or hindering being hard-wired for morality?
