Can animals compromise?

What Would Animals Say If We Asked the Right Questions?

This chapter explores animals and their capacity for justice, from their trial under courts of law to scientific experiments that suggest operant notions of fairness, mutuality, and a refusal to do hurt to another of the same species. Morality and justice in animals, the author notes, resists the burden of proof, although the study of play and its structures of cooperation and regulation offer valuable insights.
