Animal Consciousness and Communication and Human Potential
Long stuck in a Cartesian view of animals as soulless machines, Western science is beginning to show what Indigenous peoples have long known: Other-than-human nature is alive with creative expression, profound intelligence and consciousness, and seeking to understand the languages of animals can teach us a lot about ourselves. Author, journalist and adventurer James Nestor shares his remarkable experiences with groundbreaking teams of researchers and extraordinary endurance divers exploring the intelligence of cetaceans in conversation with Bioneers Executive Director, Joshua Fouts.
