Críticas

"Current thinking about human beings is dominated by the assumption that, at bottom, humans are 'just' animals and that we can look to the animal kingdom to explain much of human behaviour. These views need to be challenged because they are not only profoundly wrong about humanity but also potentially dangerous, justifying cynicism and pessimism about the future. Helene Guldberg's proposal for her book Just Another Ape seems to me precisely what is needed to issue this challenge. The scope of the proposed book suggests that it will amount to a serious assault on received ideas that have token hold in both academe and popular thought."--Professor Raymond Tallis

"For several decades a 'chimps are us' movement has been gathering steam in science and the media. It is part of a wider tendency that 'bambifies' wild animal species and denigrates human nature out of collective guilt for the perception that we are ruining our planet. In this timely, no-nonsense riposte, Helene Guldberg firmly disposes of the notion that humans are scarcely more than chimps with a genetic and cognitive tweak, torpedoes the argument that chimpanzees qualify for human rights, and provides a ringing endorsement for the idea much vilified of late of human cultural and cognitive uniqueness. An essential antidote to our narcissistic over-identification with our fellow apes."--Jeremy Taylor"

"For a long time people generally overestimated the differences between human beings and other apes. Has the pendulum swung too far the other way? Helene Guldberg thinks it has. I'm not fully persuaded, but she makes an eloquent and well argued case."--Matt Ridley

"Helene Guldberg has done us all a favour in this lucid account of the many failings and false premises of the protracted research programme to demonstrate the intellectual continuity between ourselves and our primate cousins."--James Le Fanu

"Sparkling erudite polemic."--Tim Black "Spiked "

"Guldberg is right to conclude that we should cherish our unique abilities to build a better future...[T]his book is well worth reading."--Professor Martin Lockley "Network Review "

Reseña del editor

Today, the belief that human beings are special is distinctly out of fashion. Almost every day we are presented with new revelations about how animals are so much more like us than we ever imagined. The argument is at its most powerful when it comes to our closest living relatives - the great apes. This book argues that whatever first impressions might tell us, apes are really not 'just like us'. Science has provided strong evidence that the boundaries between us and other species are vast. Unless we hold on to the belief in our exceptional abilities we will never be able to envision or build a better future - in which case, we might as well be monkeys.
