Helene Guldberg┬╣s recently published Just Another Ape? is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the world from a truly humanist perspective. She makes a convincing case that, despite the superficial similarities, there are enormous differences between humans and apes. For example, she argues that humans have the unique abilityof participating in collective cognition – drawing on the experiences of other living humans as well as previous generations.
