Who was Frans de Waal and what made his view of the world so innovative and influential? There is no fundamental difference between humans and other animals. That was the message that the recently deceased primatologist Frans de Waal (1948-2024) proclaimed throughout his life. Through his work with great apes, he forever changed the way we look at animals. Frans de Waal was a welcome guest at Radboud Reflects, where he lectured several times to a sold-out Vereeniging. Come hear psychologist Roos Vonk and ethicist Marcel Becker discuss further what we can learn from his thinking.
