Great speech by Robert Sapolsky on the unique nature of man
(skip to minute 5 to begin hearing the speech)
I’ve always said our biggest ‘fault’ as a species is our inability to come to terms that we didn’t ‘evolve’ from apes: we ARE apes. That fact is perhaps what is indeed so fascinating about human beings; we are a talented and unique hairless ape. Robert Sapolsky is obviously quite brilliant and insightful. I cannot recommend listening to this important lecture enough.He now has one more fan.
