Neurobiologist Robert Saplosky talks about his 30 years of experience being around baboons and how it has changed the way he looks at other human beings. By working with these old world monkeys, he has come up with the basic building blocks that define all species as unique. These building blocks are; aggression, theory of mind, the Golden Rule, empathy, pleasure in anticipation and gratification postponement, and culture. For each block, he goes into an in-depth explanation of what makes us no longer unique and the part in which humans are unique. In addition, he offers a fascinating and funny look at human behaviors which the rest of the animal kingdom would consider bizarre.
