Frans de Waal is a primatologist and ethologist, and is the Charles Howard Candler professor of primate behavior at Emory University.

In this fascinating Frans de Waal keynote, he recounts his captivating work studying so-called “human traits,” such as
empathy, cooperation, fairness and reciprocity, in primates and other mammals. Recently, his research has focused in on empathy, which has two parts: understanding and the emotions attached to it.

Providing incredible video clips that demonstrate the behavior that captivates his research, de Waal discusses traits that are accepted to be innate in humans, such as aggression, or the notion that we’re all out for our own profit. Amazingly, just like in humans, such bouts of aggression are always followed with reconciliation behavior, which sees chimpanzees hugging and kissing after a fight.
