Date: 
Thursday, July 29, 2010 - 10:38am
Program: 

About 365 million years ago the first vertebrates left the water and walked on land on four legs. But why leave the warm and bountiful seas? Was it safer on land? Was there more food? What were these early tetrapods like and were they related to the frogs and salamanders were are familiar with today. What can the fossil record tell us about how these creatures lived?

Inquiry: MARC BEKOFF: WILD JUSTICE: The Moral Lives of Animals

Date: 
Thursday, July 15, 2010 - 10:08am
Program: 

Can animals like chimpanzees, elephants or dogs have a kind of moral intelligence? Do some animals act altruistically and have the capacity for empathy, forgiveness and trust? Can animals be immoral? Tune in tonight to Inquiry for a fascinating conversation with cognitive ethologist MARC BEKOFF. Bekoff, with philosophy writer Jessica Piece, has written a controversial and thought provoking book which may change the way you look at the other inhabitants of this planet: WILD JUSTICE: THE MORAL LIVES OF ANIMALS.
