"Tom eight come took then so catchy we. We often ask for any of the end as the final question to our guests if they have particular works that had a great influence on them. Be at books or films or music. And i'd be curious about your answer to that is and feel free to interpret works. Very broadly it's funny. You should ask that. I was just thinking about that the other day during my formative years working in the field i had no mentors. I really didn't know very much about what it was. I was doing. Or even what i was capturing on tape so i really had to rely on some of the literature that was available. Luckily there was murray schafer's book tune the world which i mentioned earlier but there was also all the leopold sand county almanac. Rachel carson silent spring. Lauren is leandra polished and philosopher from u. penn who wrote Among other things the invisible pyramid in the star thrower dumpy. The african american poet and author. Who more recently is edited. A book called black nature compendium. That includes wonderful poets like young. And there's barbara kings over Who wrote how to fly in poison would bible her wonderful descriptions of the natural world that surround her subjects really beautiful to read his barry lopez who just passed away who many many essays and books on the natural world at abbey desert solitaire. The monkey wrench gang. Who you know was a real troublemaker. And abbes was a wonderful storyteller as well and when terrific to read whilst angle of repose. It's one of the most beautifully written novels of the twentieth century. The writing is so exquisite that as to is to copy the pages and pin them to the wall and study his sentence construction and use of words to see if i could learn from his craft and art is jack. Turner wrote the abstract wild commentary on white america and are conflicted relationship to the natural world. This book was written in the mid nineties. And the more recent book of fiction over story by richard powers is a must read for its integration of natural history and site and emotional impact. And of course there's the league paul shepard's writings where his book nature and madness posits that the further we draw away from the natural world is a culture the more pathological. We become if you don't believe that. Just watch the news. Nurses booklet was published shortly after his death. The others how animals made us human. It's his publication. That i posited. The connection between natural soundscape sent human music and is influenced my work beyond measure. Let's see if there's anything else. There are the contemporary writings that appear in publications like the guardian and the new yorker with bill mckibben and elizabeth kolbert for instance. I must say that on the music side of things. That have been listening as much as i used to But i can point out a few things. I've been listening to lately. Cosmo sheldrick the young brit. Who sample sounds and makes wonderful music and and videos it's david byrne his album with saint vincent love. This giant is terrific for its arrangements. John luther adams become ocean. He's the composer from alaska. Who does wonderful symphonies. Mostly with the Seattle symphony and so fi. The young artist who just died of a little while ago. Who did an album. It's okay to cry. Her stuff is really extraordinary. it's a wonderful compendium of musical ideas mostly electronic. Those are the people. I listened to and read and who informed my work. Ernie krause thank you us.

"The thing that feels like something yeah it's a failed experience that's consciousness and almost certainly across a huge spectrum of animals the experience of consciousness differs but it probably differs and degree rather than and combine probably everything that happens in our mind there's a version of that happens in a non human mind yeah I mean we have this natural tendency to see the world in the animal world through the human prism because it sort of allows us to create touch points you know maybe maybe ways that we relate to other animal species the but we we are saying is that that's the wrong way to look at it we actually have to turn it river reverse it start from the other side I think both can be helpful but mostly people forget to do the second part of it and we do have to just look at it from above yeah if we're going to talk about love what we mean by love and then based on that definition of what we're going to mean by it what evidence is there for love in a person in a dog in a jelly fish in a bird and you will see and all of these cases you'll see a range of mental and emotional abilities and love is one of those things can be measured in so many different ways right like like Barbara king was just talking about grief right and that is a way to measure love and we note certainly that many animals grieve you know they grieve when they lose members they're part of a group or or they can right right and she says that you can see grief in a creature if after the death of an individual that they knew they change their behavior they may be searching for them calling for them they may eat less they may spend a lot less time looking for food for a while and then eventually just as humans do they have to get back to living we we had a couple of ducks I mean people don't normally think that doc to experience grief but we had a couple of ducks a mated pair and when the mail got sick and died rather suddenly over the period of just about a day and a half the female spent weeks going to all the places in the yard where they might have been together where they used to like to hang out and she would call and call and call and call me clearly.

"You you look look at this and you say to me. This is an expression of grief to sleep apparent mourning the loss of its child. Yes i would say that because because we're never going to know to one hundred percent certainty in any given case what an animal is feeling but i am looking at the visible cues that animals give us and i think taloqan gave us lots of cues that she was very distressed that this connection was the important thing for her with this individual individual animal who was no longer breathing so today taloqan swims on with the j. pod but her grief still moves me. Barbara king picks up the idea from the ted stage and i do believe that grief is the right word to use. I believe that brief is the right where to use for numerous animals mourn the dead. They may be friends or mates or relatives now for the last seven years. I've been working to document examples of animal grief in birds in mammals in domesticated animals and in wild animals and i believe in the reality of animal grief now i say it this way because i need to acknowledge to you right up front that not all scientists agree with me and part of the reason i think is because of what i call the word. The word is anthropomorphic and historically. It's been a big deterrent to recognizing animal emotions so anthropomorphic anthropomorphized is when we project onto other animals eric capacities for our emotions and we can. I'll probably think of examples of this. Let's say we have a friend who tells us. My cat understands. Everything i say or my dog. He's so sweet. He ran right across the yard this morning towards the squirrel and i know he just wants to play well. Maybe or maybe not i'm skeptical about claims like with those but amethyst different because we're not trying to read an animal's mind we're looking at visible cues of behavior and trying to interpret them with some meaning now it's true scientists often pushed back at me and they'll say look the animal stressed or maybe the animals just confused because host his or her routine has been disrupted but i think that this over worry about anthropomorphic misses a fundamental point because these visible cues behavioral cues tell us something about an animal's emotional state we evaluate human grief through language right obviously with animals they can do that and you can understand why some people might be skeptical of this research. I do understand the pushback that we get and i think that it's very important to get that pushback into get that criticism. It's exactly actually what science is good at. When i get a comment from someone saying tell me the difference between stress and grief in in case acts or case why or why do you really think that this isn't an example of anthropomorphic him. I learned from that process a really going over the alternative possibilities but behind all of these questions really lurks the concept of human exceptionalism because a lot of scientists would like to think that we are exceptional in our emotional abilities and i am trying to push back against that and not not start from a starting point where certain emotions are uniquely human. If that's your starting point you're never going to see them and other animals whether they're president or not. Animals can act in ways that are pretty familiar to us for a long time. Scientists resisted the urge to anthropomorphized or to look for human qualities in animals but now some of the world's most preeminent biologists and researchers are asking questions like do animals is greed in ways we can recognize do they have consciousness or a comprehensive language or the ability to empathize like us so today on the show we're rethinking anthropomorphic them and looking at ways that animals may be more like humans than ever thought before and how those similarities i might help us better understand our own place in the world and for barbara king for own thinking about animals and increase changed when she started researching elephants frit quickly as i started reading. I was convinced that elephant grief is real real so we know that these are big brained highly social mammals. They live in family groups. Elephants are the touchtone species he sees in a certain sense in that we have peer reviewed science publications showing that elephants respond around a body with a vigil with distressed body movement all sorts of things that fit my definition of grief cynthia maas is a tremendous long-term elephant elephant researcher in kenya and she has described elephants crossing a plane or a savannah and diverting toward bones dried bleached elephant bones sitting there in the sun and a particular elephant spending more time caressing particular skull and she knows from her long-term records who had died there and she knows that the animal caressing those bones is a relative of that did individual that just blows. My mind is amazing thing and i just kept going. I started to expand broaden the question and say elephants grieve how about our closest living relative monkeys and apes that was pretty clearly yes but i started asking about animals as wide as farmed animals companion animals like cats and rabbits and i kept coming up with more and more yeses so once i started asking and started looking it became clear to me that there was a whole the elephants are the tip of the iceberg and they're so much more to talk about here so we'll science. Tell us someday about bereaved b.'s. Will we hear about frogs morm-. I don't think so and i think the reason is because animals really need one to one close relationships for that to happen. I also know that circumstance matters and personality matters i in any case ammos are not going to grieve exactly like we do. We have human creativity. We paint our grief dance our brief right our grief. We also can grieve for people. We've never met across space and time animals. Don't grieve exactly like we do but this doesn't mean that their grief isn't real it is real and it's syrah and we can see it if we choose mm-hmm if it's true that certain species of animals that we are very familiar with experience grief as this as our knowledge pledge of these experiences becomes better and clear it becomes more challenging to kind of confront the decisions we make as humid it it certainly does. This has become in recent years driving impetus for what i'm doing because what does this mean for animal human relationships. What does this mean for the ethics of how we understand these fellow travelers on our planet and how we treat animals including questions of who we eat i wrote a whole book about who we eat and the extension of my work to farm animals changed inst- my thinking just revolutionary so unchanged what i eat quite a bit as well. It's been very convenient for all of us and i do include myself i self to think of farm animals ranging from chickens and pigs and cows and ducks as being not so smart and certainly not capable of profound emotion sean. It's convenient because we want them on our plates. So plant based eating has become just superbly important to me. I mean i think to me what's weird about. The pushback against anthropomorphic is that if we identify with animals in the same way we identify with other humans. It's inevitably going to create more empathy for animals and other pune animals that is such a wonderful wonderful point because sometimes mass you know why are you agitating for animals when there's so much human suffering in the world but you're absolutely right because because empathy begets empathy and when we raise our children to care and empathize with animals into see their cues of how these animals are sinking and feeling in the world. I think it's only going to multiply upon itself and isn't that what it's all about. We really want to see each other for who we are and what i'm suggesting is that the part of empathy that's so important is to see that their lives matter to them profoundly. They spend their days thinking and feeling. It's up to us to see that and to take some action when we realize it barbeque king. She's a professor of biological anthropology apology. You can see her entire. Talk at ted dot com on the show today anthropomorphic how we relate to animals stay with us <music>. You're listening to the ted radio hour from n._p._r. Hey.

"It is i wonder how you think about king in those final years and where he was because in many ways when you talk about like the narrative of king juan he was in a very tough point of his career at that moment yes so if you look at what his friend his confidant his colleagues were saying to him he was having a mental health crisis he was searching for his role for the role of civil rights in liberation he was trying to figure out exactly what the thing was that he needed to push need to to rail against who actually change the material conditions of black people and poor people in the country and you see him in those last couple years oriented himself to a fierce economic critique shutout whoever i'm barbara 'cause he has an amazing essay in our special issue on this where he's he has his critique of the very capitalist system of america the foundations of our society he's actually taking those foundations taking stock of them and saying they need to be replaced so you see much more radical figure than allowed in our national consciousness when we think about king and people quote the dream speech they are not grappling with these last few years of king really trying to figure out how to make a nonviolent equal country and one that serves the purpose of justice throughout the world dr barbara king king offers that critique in the last years of his life sixty eight is also the year that king that kennedy is assassinated and in which richard nixon wins the presidential elections do you see a connection between that event and where the nation's politics donald trump arts today.
