Learn and discuss with Dr. Proctor whether nonhuman animals have morals. This is a fascinating topic and a great discussion.
Join Dr. Darby Proctor, a primatologist who has spent a decade working with nonhuman primates, to discuss the current research on behaviors that may indicate something like a sense of morality in nonhuman species.
While the focus will be on primates, dogs, rats and other species will also be discussed.
Topics discussed will include empathy, helping, cooperation and more.
