Behalve Frans quotes by Frans Johansson
#1. The best ideas emerge when very different perspectives meet. #Quote by Frans Johansson
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans Lanting
#2. A lion is not a lion is not a lion. As individuals, as mates, as members of a society, they're all very different. #Quote by Frans Lanting
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#3. Most exotic animals are not particularly interested in people, which makes it hard to provoke them. Human-rearing gets them used to and sometimes imprinted on humans, which makes them potentially dangerous. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#4. Our societies probably work best if they mimic as closely as possible the small-scale communities of our ancestors. We certainly did not evolve to live in cities with millions of people where we bump into strangers everyone we go, are threatened by them in dark streets, sit next to them in the bus, and give them the finger in traffic jams. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans P.B. Osinga
#5. This time he asks his audience to join him in a mental exercise. As Boyd states, Imagine that you are on a ski slope with other skiers [. . .]. Imagine that you are in Florida riding in an outboard motorboat, maybe even towing water-skiers. Imagine that you are riding a bicycle on a nice spring day. Imagine that you are a parent taking your son to a department store and that you notice he is fascinated by the toy tractors or tanks with rubber caterpillar treads'.38 Now imagine that you pull the ski's off but you are still on the ski slope. Imagine also that you remove the outboard motor from the motor boat, and you are not longer in Florida. And from the bicycle you remove the handle- bar and discard the rest of the bike. Finally, you take off the rubber treads from the toy tractor or tanks. This leaves only the following separate pieces: skis, outboard motor, handlebars and rubber treads. However, he challenges his audience, what emerges when you pull all this together?39 SNOWMOBILE #Quote by Frans P.B. Osinga

#6. Science is not inherently good. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#7. In humans, the family prevents infanticide. Next to language, the core family, consisting of a mother, a father and children, is the greatest difference between us and other primates. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#8. Competitiveness is just as much a part of our nature as empathy. The ideal, in my view, is a democratic system with a social market economy, because it takes both tendencies into account. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#9. As in a Russian doll, however, the outer layers always contain an inner core. Instead of evolution having replaced simpler forms of empathy with more advanced ones, the latter are merely elaborations on the former and remain dependent on them. This also means that empathy comes naturally to us. It is not something we only learn later in life, or that is culturally constructed. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#10. Although elephants are far more distantly related to us than the great apes, they seem to have evolved similar social and cognitive capacities. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#11. If you are a cooperative animal, you need to watch what you get. If you, or even a whole community, invest in something but then a few individuals receive a much larger return, it's not a good arrangement. If it happens consistently, it's time to look for an arrangement that is more beneficial. That's why we're so sensitive to how rewards are being divided. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#12. Neuroscience may one day resolve how planning takes place. The first hints are coming from the hippocampus, which has long been known to be vital both for memory and for future orientation. The devastating effects of Alzheimer's typically begin with degeneration of this part of the brain. As with all major brain areas, however, the human hippocampus is far from unique. Rats have a similar structure, which has been intensely studied. After a maze task, these rodents keep replaying their experiences in this brain region, either during sleep or sitting still while awake. Using brain waves to detect what kind of maze paths the rats are rehearsing in their heads, scientists found that more is going on than a consolidation of past experiences. #Quote by Frans De Waal

#13. I call the notion that we are nothing but killer apes the Beethoven fallacy. Beethoven was disorganized and messy, and yet his music is the epitome of order. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#14. In Africa, we have the bush meat trade, which means that, on a very large scale, animals are being killed in the forests and sold in the cities as a luxury food. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans Lanting
#15. It's up to us as photographers to give voice to the natural world. #Quote by Frans Lanting
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#16. Unlike the primate hand, the elephant's grasping organ is also its nose. Elephants use their trunks not only to reach food but also to sniff and touch it. With their unparalleled sense of smell, the animals know exactly what they are going for. Vision is secondary. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#17. When humans behave murderously, such as inflicting senseless slaughter of innocents in warfare, we like to blame it on some dark, 'animalistic' instinct. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#18. One can train dolphins to jump synchronously because they do so in the wild, and one can teach horses to run together at the same pace because wild horses do the same. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#19. There is so much resistance to the idea of animal culture that one cannot escape the impression that it is an idea whose time is come. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#20. Perhaps it's just me, but I am wary of any persons whose belief system is the only thing standing between them and repulsive behavior. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#21. From an evolutionary perspective, nothing could be worse for a male than to eliminate his own progeny. It's assumed, therefore, that nature has provided males with a rule of thumb to attack only infants of mothers with whom they have had no recent sex. This may seem foolproof for the males, but it opens the door for a brilliant female counterstrategy. By accepting the advances of many males, a female can buffer herself against infanticide because none of her mates can discard the possibility that her infant is his. In other words, it pays to sleep around. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#22. If you look at human society, it is very easy, of course, to compare our warfare and territoriality with the chimpanzee. But that's only one side of what we do. We also trade, we intermarry, we allow each other to travel through our territory. There's an enormous amount of cooperation. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#23. I'm personally a nonbeliever, so I'm struggling with if we really need religion. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans Lanting
#24. I became interested in photography during my first visit to the United States. I was a student at a university in Holland. I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the American West. That was when I learned about the tradition of nature in American photography. #Quote by Frans Lanting
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#25. A chimpanzee who is really gearing up for a fight doesn't waste time with gestures but just goes ahead and attacks. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#26. I have often noticed how primate groups in their entirety enter a similar mood. All of a sudden, all of them are playful, hopping around. Or all of them are grumpy. Or all of them are sleepy and settle down. In such cases, the mood contagion serves the function of synchronizing activities. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#27. The thinking is that we started evolving language not by speaking but by gesturing. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#28. At the time, science had declared humans unique, since we were so much better at identifying faces than any other primate. No one seemed bothered by the fact that other primates had been tested mostly on human faces rather than those of their own kind. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#29. Scientists are supposed to study animals in a totally objective fashion, similar to the way we inspect a rock or measure the circumference of a tree trunk. Emotions are not to interfere with the assessment. The animal-rights movement capitalizes on this perception, depicting scientists as devoid of compassion. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans Johansson
#30. Nearly every major breakthrough innovation has been preceded by a string of failed or misguided executions. #Quote by Frans Johansson
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#31. The fact that the apes exist and that we can study them is extremely important and makes us reflect on ourselves and our human nature. In that sense alone, you need to protect the apes. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#32. Having escaped the Dark Ages in which animals were mere stimulus-response machines, we are free to contemplate their mental lives. It is a great leap forward, the one that Griffin fought for. But now that animal cognition is an increasingly popular topic, we are still facing the mindset that animal cognition can be only a poor substitute of what we humans have. It can't be truly deep and amazing. Toward the end of a long career, many a scholar cannot resist shining a light on human talents by listing all the things we are capable of and animals not. From the human perspective, these conjectures may make a satisfactory read, but for anyone interested, as I am, in the full spectrum of cognitions on our planet, they come across as a colossal waste of time. What a bizarre animal we are that the only question we can ask in relation to our place in nature is "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the smartest of them all? #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#33. We are not the only ones who knew a Stone Age: our closest relatives still live in one. To stress this point, a "percussive stone technology" site (including stone assemblies and the remains of smashed nuts) was excavated in a tropical forest in Ivory Coast, where chimpanzees must have been opening nuts for at least four thousand years.31 These discoveries led to a human-ape lithic culture story #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#34. Humanity is actually much more cooperative and empathic than [it's] given credit for. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#35. Below I describe two examples, one concerning self-awareness and the other culture, both concepts that, whenever mentioned in relation to animals, still send some scholars through the roof. Armchair #Quote by Frans De Waal
Behalve Frans quotes by Tao Lin
#36. Nice said Paul staring transfixed at Fran's delicate and extreme gaze, like that of a skeleton with eyeballs, or a person with their face peeled off. #Quote by Tao Lin
Behalve Frans quotes by Frans De Waal
#37. Humanity's special place in the cosmos is one of abandoned claims and moving goalposts. #Quote by Frans De Waal
