Teoríes[editar | editar la fonte]

As a young adult, Prince-Hughes was employed at Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo. She watched how silverback male gorilles cared for their families and paternally intervened to resolve conflicts, thereby setting the tone for community behavior. She came to conclude anger often stems from embarrassment, and humor is a natural response to fear.

Prince-Hughes challenges the predominant scientific paradigm, which says the nature of mankind's cognitive processes is clearly distinct from that of other primates. She has formulated several contrarian scientific conclusions, including her assertion that Bonobo chimpanzees can speak English if one just learns to understand the accent.[3]

Lliteratura[editar | editar la fonte]

En Songs of the Gorilla Nation, Prince-Hughes describes how she learned techniques to manage her Asperger syndrome from experiences observing and interacting with gorillas at the Woodland Park Zoo. In Gorilla Nation, she explores how working with gorillas helped her escape her social isolation. Asperger syndrome may be accompanied by difficulties processing stimuli, sensory sensitivity, and social awkwardness. As suggested by the title, which speaks of a 'nation' of gorillas, the author conveys an eyeview of the world from the perspective of primates, effectively demonstrating how people and gorillas are subsumed emotionally, socially, and spiritually under the same rubric.

Expecting Teryk follows Dawn and her partner's journey from meeting and connecting to becoming parents.

Gorillas Among Us compresses Prince-Hughes' many years of observing captive gorillas through an enclosure—visitors usually average only a few seconds—into a diary chronicling the lives of one gorilla family. She creates a blended portrait of both peoples—gorilla and human.
