Wild Man from Borneo: A cultural history of the Orangutan by Robert Cribb, Helen Gilbert and Helen Tiffen

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    What does it mean to be human – nearly human, not-quite-human, or even inhuman? Such questions have preoccupied writers and researchers for centuries, from Charles Darwin and Mary Shelley to the uncanny valley of robotics, AI, and a trans-human future. In Wild Man from Borneo, Robert Cribb, Helen Gilbert, and Helen Tiffen explore this question through the prism of our relationship with one of our closest relatives, the orangutan.
