Human and animal. Culture and nature. Fable and science. We are all very good at compartmentalising. Obvious differences thus prevent us from recognising how the broader picture of life on Earth fits together. Professor Hans Van Dyck is fascinated by animal culture and by human instinct. Man doesn’t have to be toppled from his pedestal, but insights into socially transmitted animal behaviours can help us to view this topic from a more enlightened perspective. An inspiring complement to Haydn’s The Creation.
