We humans can learn volumes about our species by studying one of our closest relatives—the chimpanzee—at least according to one of the world’s leading researchers in the field, Dr. Josep Call who researches primate psychology at the prestigious Max Planck Institute. Dr. Call offers perspectives on human development and he is astonished of how we as a species can live together in communities. He tells of humans’ unique characteristics, that our flexibility is absolutely unique.
Meet an eminent scientist with deep insights into human evolution and our relationship to a human ape. Dr. Call makes a vivid comparison: If we had found a monkey-like animal on Mars, how would we react? To say the least, it would be a worldwide sensation. But we do not have to travel so far…they are already here.
