BONOBOS AND LANGUAGE – PODCASTS

May 2007

Dr Ginger Campbell, a medic who works in an A&E department in Texas, has an excellent series of podcasts dealing with scientific issues. This series is called “The BrainScience podcast – the podcast for everyone with a brain”. This one is an interview with Stuart Shanker about his work on Bonobo chimps, explaining how he completely changed his mind about their abilities. Ginger has also summarised Greenspan and Shanker’s  book “The First Idea: How Symbols, Language, and Intelligence Evolved From Our Primate Ancestors to Modern Humans” in another of her podcasts.
