Seeing Living Things Anew

Do apes have ethics? Do trees communicate? Are wolves our friends or foes? Is an elephant a person? This course is the follow-up to a Spring 2022 Osher course in which we explored what science is learning about what animals, plants and fungi can know, feel and do. We will delve deeper into what scientists and ethicists have been saying about what these living things are capable of, and how our relationship with them is changing now, and will continue to change in the future. You do not have to have been a participant in the Spring 2022 Osher course to understand and benefit from this course.

Dates and locations to be announced.
