Project Nim


This was a comment on the youtube video. Dunno about these other experiments, but may be worth checking them out if you want to know more.

This films seems to portrait "Project Nim" as unique, but what about Washoe and the Gardners? Roger Fouts and Moja, Dar, Tatu and Loulis? Lucy and the Tamerlins? Sue Savage-Rumbaugh and Kanzi and Panbanisha? Chantek the Orangutan? Koko the Gorilla? And before the Kelloggs and Gua? The Hayes and Viki? If you are interested in this subject, please inform yourselves, project Nim was quite a failure in some ways, there were (there are) many other projects.

  1. See this film. Then read Roger Fouts amazing book, 'Next of Kin'. After seeing Project Nim, I can't say I'm a fan of Herbert Terrace or his selfish and vane approach to 'science'.
