In the last chapter of Naked Ape, Morris writes, and I agree with him that
despite all our technological advances, we are still very much a simple biological phenomenon.
He continues to write
Despite our grandiose ideas and our lofty self conceits, we are still humble animals, subject to all the basic laws of animal behaviour.
Before you hang me, he also writes
we are an extraordinary species and I do not wish to deny it, or belittle us.
