This week on Interfaith Voices:

Tracing Ethics to Our Animal Cousins

From chimpanzees to bonobos, primates can be amazingly altruistic–consoling distressed group members, even prying rocks from fighting males’ hands. Biologist Frans de Waal explains why we humans can trace traits like empathy, justice and cooperation all the way back to our animal ancestors. From April 2013.

Through the Pen, Finding Friendship and Spirituality

Back in 2004, Amy Andrews and Jessica Mesman Griffith met in creative writing class. Spiritual seekers, they began exchanging handwritten letters and eight years later, they haven’t stopped. The best of their exchanges are now compiled in a new book. From May 2013.

Featured speakers/guests:

Amy Andrews and Jessica Mesman Griffith, authors of Love & Salt: A Spiritual Friendship

Frans de Waal, author of The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates
