Download Le bestie siamo noi: Cosa possiamo imparare dagli animali by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson PDF

By Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson

Se ci impegnassimo in un confronto equo tra animali ed esseri umani, riusciremmo a capire meglio dove los angeles nostra specie ha sbagliato. E, seppur in ritardo, a rimediare.
Le orche sono uno dei superpredatori del pianeta. Insieme agli esseri umani, hanno il cervello più complesso mai studiato in natura. A differenza nostra però, non si uccidono mai tra di loro; noi invece, solo nel ventesimo secolo, abbiamo contato 2 hundred milioni di vittime. Cos’hanno di diverso gli esseri umani?
Jeffrey M. Masson sa bene che gli animali possono insegnarci molto sulle nostre emozioni - come l’amore (i cani), l’appagamento (i gatti), il dolore (gli elefanti)... Ma possono insegnarci moltissimo anche sulle emozioni destructive, come l. a. rabbia e l’aggressività, e in modi inaspettati. Invece attribuiamo i comportamenti umani più spregevoli agli animali, considerati come «bestie», e rivendichiamo di continuo l. a. superiorità della nostra specie, pensando di essere meno «umani» quando cediamo ai nostri istinti animali primitivi. Niente di più falso. I predatori animali uccidono in line with sopravvivere; non si è mai verificata una sola aggressione animale con una ferocia simile a quella che l’umanità si è autoinflitta. Gli esseri umani, e in particolare quelli vissuti dall’industrializzazione in poi, sono l. a. specie più violenta mai esistita. A differenza di tutti gli altri animali, non abbiamo il controllo sull’aggressività, che ci impedirebbe di autodistruggerci. Ed è in step with questo che dagli animali abbiamo solo da imparare.
