Reaction Paper 2: Humans as Primates
For this reaction paper, you will be writing a 150-200 word response paper to either (CHOOSE ONLY ONE):
- This weeks assigned reading by Dr. Robert Sapolsky, “The young and the reckless” OR
- TED talk video by Dr. Susan Savage-Rumbaugh, “The gentle genius of bonobos” (http://www.ted.com/talks/susan_savage_rumbaugh_on_apes_that_write.html):
The title of this paper will take the format of a citation (Please visit http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html for explicit instructions on citing an article and a website). This paper is different from an abstract in that it should not only (a) summarize the content of the article or video, but also (b) include a thoughtful response about humans as primates. What are primates? What makes humans primates? Remember that a critique is not an invitation for you to say whether or not you liked something, but rather to think critically about it, and share those thoughts. Please watch this week’s lectures BEFORE completing this assignment.
