note to self

To read as soon as possible: Gods and Gorillas [interview with anthropologist Barbara J. King on the evolution of religion]. What struck me actually is not so much the origin of religion in human societies, but a certain attitude towards animals that comes to expression here: “King observes that non-human primates show empathy and meaning-making in their social actions”, writes Tad.  For the time being read more at fieldnotes.
