Research » Frans de Waal: Moral behavior in animals | Soul Fill | Scoop.it

"TED Talks Empathy, cooperation, fairness and reciprocity -- caring about the well-being of others seems like a very human trait."

 

In animals we have the opportunity to analyze a system of morality free from doctrine.  Observation and research seem to be demonstrating that qualities such as empathy and fairness are not uniquely human.  While humans and other species do have their distinct differences, how can we honor the dignity of species besides our own?
