Your homework assignment for Chapter 7 focuses on the documentary clips from Koko: The Gorilla Who Talks. After viewing the documentary clips, reflect on the following questions. First, do you agree that Koko displays the capacity for language? Explain your position. Second, Dr. Patterson and Koko develop a good relationship, but not all have agreed with it. Some critics have claimed that Dr. Patterson humanized Koko, emphasizing that apes should be left in the most natural state possible. Even Dr. Patterson has struggled with these feelings. When asked if her research findings could be duplicated by another group of scientists, she said, “We don’t think that it would be ethical to do again.” She went on to argue that animals should not be kept in such unnatural circumstances. Recall our study of ethics in research from Chapter 2. What are your thoughts about Dr. Patterson’s relationship with Koko? What ethical issues should be considered?
