Late night tales bonobo review
The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates by Frans de WaalIn this lively and illuminating discussion of his landmark research, esteemed primatologist Frans de Waal argues that human morality is not imposed from above but instead comes from within. Moral behavior does not begin and end with religion but is in fact a product of evolution.
For many years, de Waal has observed chimpanzees soothe distressed neighbors and bonobos share their food. Now he delivers fascinating fresh evidence for the seeds of ethical behavior in primate societies that further cements the case for the biological origins of human fairness. Interweaving vivid tales from the animal kingdom with thoughtful philosophical analysis, de Waal seeks a bottom-up explanation of morality that emphasizes our connection with animals. In doing so, de Waal explores for the first time the implications of his work for our understanding of modern religion. Whatever the role of religious moral imperatives, he sees it as a “Johnny-come-lately” role that emerged only as an addition to our natural instincts for cooperation and empathy.
But unlike the dogmatic neo-atheist of his book’s title, de Waal does not scorn religion per se. Instead, he draws on the long tradition of humanism exemplified by the painter Hieronymus Bosch and asks reflective readers to consider these issues from a positive perspective: What role, if any, does religion play for a well-functioning society today? And where can believers and nonbelievers alike find the inspiration to lead a good life?
Rich with cultural references and anecdotes of primate behavior, The Bonobo and the Atheist engagingly builds a unique argument grounded in evolutionary biology and moral philosophy. Ever a pioneering thinker, de Waal delivers a heartening and inclusive new perspective on human nature and our struggle to find purpose in our lives.

Late Night Tales: Bonobo
Bonobo has invited you over for mid-week dinner. You have been fed well, you now are just finishing a bottle of red. Switch on shuffle and the Late Night Tales of Bonobo is what comes next. The Late Night Tales series of compilations are each carefully selected by the guest producer or musician. To me, his last album The North Borders released earlier this year fitted in smugly with the very housey trend of popular music, which at the time the clubbing youth was listening to.
Artist: Bonobo. When I ever imagine meeting my favourite artists I always like to suppose that we would get on like a house on fire. Well judging by the recent outpouring from Late Night Tales , mixtape masters that invite the worlds best musicians to open their record bag , Bonobo and I would get on very well. Late Night Tales is all about the feel — those tracks that bring on the night time and light up your darkness. Simon Green knows his onions and is a sublime DJ as well as an amazing producer.
The Back to Mine-style compilation is so established a format that it takes something really superior to get you excited, especially as not getting excited is normally part of what these chill-out enhancers are all about. But Simon Green, aka Bonobo, has created a beguiling and compelling narrative.
