Berlin Science Week Talk, Fritz Francisco: Why Behaviour? Why we behave the way we do
From French photographers, Austrian naturalists and English adventurers – all have been equally fascinated by the way we are affected by, and interact with our surroundings. It is the intricate interplay between self and others, known and unknown, present and future that makes behaviour so hard to grasp and exciting to study. Ethology, the study of animal behaviour tackled this for ages. However, it has recently undergone a change, with digital assistance, such as cameras, as well as computers and their algorithms. Yet, the underlying object of interest – behaviour – has not changed! Fritz Francisco will discuss what behaviour actually is and wish to make us see our own behaviour in a slightly different light.
