Abstract

Comparative studies of cognition in human and nonhuman primates should in the future be complemented by cultural approaches where humans and animals are allowed to affect each other. Such work would help us see the overwhelming affinities and similarities that put the differences in their proper perspective:

Biology that lacks an intuitive knowledge of resemblances can provide only an impoverished, mechanistic view of the living world. We may say that the rationalization of this intuitive understanding of similarity is the essence of the new science of living things. (Imanishi 2002: 7)
