Good Natured by Franz de Waal
Book DescriptionThe author challenges those who have declared ethics uniquely human. Making a case for a morality grounded in biology, he shows that ethical behaviour, in humans and animals alike, is as much a matter of evolution as any other trait. Anecdotes, theories and data are used throughout.

Books By Author Franz de Waal
Bonobo and the Atheist, Paperback (April 2014)
In 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.
Age of Empathy, Hardback (October 2010)
Empathy holds communities together, and humans have evolved into empathetic creatures (and not only humans, but also primates, elephants, even rodents). Humans are hardwired to be altruistic, the result of thousands of years of evolutionary biology that has kept society from slipping into anarchy.
Primates and Philosophers, Paperback (January 2009)
'It's the animal in us', we often hear when we've been bad. But why not when we're good? This book tackles this question by exploring the biological foundations of one of humanity's most valued traits: morality. It argues that modern-day evolutionary biology takes far too dim a view of the natural world, emphasizing our 'selfish' genes.
Chimpanzee Politics, Paperback (November 2007)» View all books by Franz de Waal
As we watch the chimpanzees of Arnhem behave in ways we recognize from Machiavelli (and from the nightly news), de Waal reminds us again that the roots of politics are older than humanity.
