Event Details

Duke Science & Society Dinner DialoguesWe often assume that we are the most intelligent animals on earth. But this uni dimensional view of intelligence has been outdated for decades. What can we learn from other animals, both in how they solve problems and their emotional intelligence, and how can this knowledge help us be better people?

Dr. Brian Hare is associate professor of evolutionary anthropology at Duke University, co-director of Duke’s Canine Cognition Center, and a member of the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, which is a division of the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences. Brian is also the co-founder of Dognition, a truly revolutionary new service for dog lovers who wonder about their dog’s intelligence.
