Primate Psychology by Dario Maestripieri
Book DescriptionIn more ways than we may sometimes care to acknowledge, the human being is just another primate - it is certainly only very rarely that researchers into cognition, emotion, personality and behaviour in our species and in other primates come together to compare notes and share insights. This book, one of the few comprehensive attempts at integrating behavioural research into human and non-human primates, does precisely that - and in doing so, offers a clear, in-depth look at the mutually enlightening work being done in psychology and primatology. Relying on theories of behaviour derived from psychology rather than ecology or biological anthropology, the contributors, internationally known experts in primatology and psychology, focus primarily on social processes in areas including aggression, conflict resolution, sexuality, attachment, parenting, social development and affiliation, cognitive development, social cognition, personality, emotions, vocal and non-vocal communication, cognitive neuroscience and psychopathology.
