Dr. Frans de Waal has spent four decades at the forefront of animal research and is one of the world’s most acclaimed primatologists. Besides having had his research published in leading scientific journals such as Science and Nature he is known for his numerous popular books that have been translated into more than 20 languages. In 2007, he was selected by Time as one of The Worlds’ 100 Most Influential People Today.
His research focuses on the social behaviour and intelligence of chimpanzees and other primates, and how they are in many ways similar to us. He talks about concepts such as primate culture, emotions, empathy, politics and morality.
Wine & Science has invited Frans de Waal to Copenhagen to give an exclusive talk about the topic of his new book, Mama's Last Hug: Animal Emotions and What They Tell Us about Ourselves (2019).
Host of the evening will be Peter Kjærgaard, Professor of Evolutionary History and Museum Director at the Natural History Museum of Denmark.
A glass of wine will be served during the intermission (included in the price).
