Вообще позиция межвидовой солидарности - это современный подход, он адекватен стремительно складывающимся и повсеместно проявляющимся условиям глобализации, зависимости каждого от каждого, всех от всего и всего от всех. Кстати, стремительно развивается и другой полюс "межвидовой солидарности", а именно - с миром машин (если только понятие "солидарность" здесь применимо), это философия трансгуманизма.

пост Reinyer интересен.



Слоны любят пить пиво, а дельфины – пугать чаек: ученые выяснили, как развлекаются животные

This is awesome and incredibly revealing:


Chimp Plays Pacman





Two bonobo chimpanzees - Kanzi and Panbanisha - understand thousands of words. They use sentences, talk on the phone, and they like to gossip. In short, they use language in many of the same ways humans do. That's not supposed to be possible.




It's the Great Ape Trust - the old project?


argument in defense of animal uplift:




Животные тоже приглашены в парадайз. :)



Научная фантастика


  • Серия книг \"Возвышение\" Дэвида Брина - вселенная, где все разумные расы занимаются возвышением животных (генная инженерия, отбор, другие технологические средства). Люди возвышают дельфинов и шимпанзе. Шимпанзе, в свою очередь, в тайне начали возвышение горилл.


Incidentally, here's a few science fiction writers who wrote about

enhanced animal conciousness that I recall:

  • Keith Laumer
  • Poul Anderson
  • Roger Zelazney
  • Frederick Pohl
  • Phillip K. Dick
  • Walter Jon Williams
  • Steven Brust
  • Robert Heinlein

and I'll bet there are lots more too!

  • Clifford D. Simak


Great Ape Trust, Des Moines, Iowa

Bonobos, chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans are thinking, self-aware and intelligent beings! They clearly have the capacity to learn language.

Study and enhance animal intelligence through education and training.


They will live in a specially-built house, monitored 24 hours a day by closed-circuit television cameras that will capture their most intimate moments. A 10 million (?5.4 million) 18-room house on the outskirts of Des Moines that comes complete with flushing lavatories, an indoor waterfall and climbing walls. A kitchen in which to prepare meals and vending machines that dispense snacks. Bonobos have been described by one researcher "as the closest you can get to being human without being human''. It is estimated that they share 98.4 per cent of their DNA with humans.
