What are bonobos? And what can we learn from them about our own evolutionary trajectory? This article takes a look at the love and lives of bonobos, especially their sex lives, for a thoughtful reevaluation of our behaviour.

just shows that no scientific theory, including evolution, proves everything.

This article sensationalizes ONE of the traits of bonobo culture. They're full of enorphins and are very cohesive, as opposed to chimpanzee culture, which is male-led, violent and solves problems with a ''might-makes-right'' mind-set.

Frans DeWaal has written several books on the interesting differences in our nearest relatives. He proposes that our problems as a species are related to the contradictory nature of our problem-solving legacy.

Whatever makes them happy and non-violent is a good thing.
