A Quote by Professor Stephen L. Clark on affection, authority, children, gifts, humanity, life, love, respect, and sharing

Affection towards clan-mates, love of children, deference to authority, disinclination to kill those who have reminded us of common humanity, even some respect for property; these features of human life do not, it seems, stem from our intellectual gifts. We share them with our cousins.

A Quote by Professor Stephen L. Clark on animals, manners, motivation, needs, prejudice, sharing, understanding, and world

If we are to understand the animals with whom we share the world, we need to watch them, interact with them, without too much prejudice. Undestanding them, we may also understand ourselves a little more. By seeing what constrains and motivates our kindred we may, perhaps, discover what the morals and manners of the human beasts might be.
