Event Type:  Lecture (This is an NIH Science event)
Annual Lecture:  Other
Title:  Animal Emotions & Empathy
Description:  Dr. Frans B. M. de Waal, a Dutch/American biologist and primatologist known for his work on behavior and social intelligence of primates, will discuss early ideas about animal emotions and draw upon research on empathy and the perception of emotions in primates to make the point that the study of animal emotions is a necessary complement to the study of human behavior. His first book, Chimpanzee Politics (1982), compared the schmoozing and scheming of chimpanzees involved in power struggles with that of human politicians. Dr. de Waal’s scientific work has been published in hundreds of technical articles in journals such as Science, Nature, and Scientific American. His popular books – translated into twenty languages – have made him one of the world’s most visible primatologists. His latest book is Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? (2016). Dr. de Waal is the C.H. Candler Professor in the Psychology Department of Emory University, and Director of the Living Links Center at the Yerkes National Primate Center, Atlanta, Georgia. He has been elected to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2007, he was selected by Time magazine as one of the Worlds’ 100 Most Influential People Today.
