Ethical Behavior

Primatologist/Biologist Frans de Waal hosts a TED Talks video exploring ethical behavior in animals, primarily what he calls the “pillars of morality”. List the pillars and briefly explain two scenarios depicted in the video and identify which moral “pillar” these scenarios depict. Also explain your reaction to watching this video, with regard to your thoughts on human versus animal morality, and with regard to the assertion that evolutionary theory is considered by some to be a threat to ethics, according to Part I of BEING GOOD by Blackburn. Please note, this video is available on YouTube if students wish to watch it again:
