Kanzi, Pan-Homo Culture, and Theological Primatology
October 7, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Nancy R. Howell, PhD
Professor of Theology and Philosophy of Religion
Saint Paul School of Theology in Greater Kansas City
Kanzi, a bonobo with extraordinary capacity for symbolic communication, acquired language not by rote teaching, but by immersion in a complex Pan-Homo language culture. Kanzi and his bonobo-human family point toward a larger concept of the eco-family and our evolutionary/ecological kinship with Great Apes. Theological primatology is Christian reflection on the meaning of being human and primate in our creative relationship with God.
