We’re The Best

Early anthropologists spent their time pointing out how superior European culture was to everyone else’s. Early animal behaviourists are intent on proving man is the paragon of animals. When they discovered that Neanderthals had bigger brains than us, they immediately reversed themselves and decided smaller brains meant greater intelligence. If a dolphin and a man perform identical actions, behaviourists will interpret the dolphins’ acts in the most demeaning possible ways and interpret man’s as intelligent transcendence.
