Nim Chimpsky : the chimp who would be human by Elizabeth Hess( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Could a chimpanzee raised from infancy by a human family bridge the gap between species--and change the way we think about the boundaries between animal and human? Here is the strange and moving account of an experiment intended to answer these questions, and of the chimp who was chosen to see it through. Columbia University psychologist Herbert S. Terrace's goal was to teach a chimpanzee American Sign Language in order to refute Noam Chomsky's assertion that language is an exclusively human trait. Nim Chimpsky, the baby chimp, was "adopted" by a graduate student. At first his progress exceeded all expectations--his charm and mischievous sense of humor endeared him to everyone. But no one had thought through the long-term consequences of raising a chimp in the human world. Nim's story will move and entertain at the same time that it challenges us to ask what it means to be human.--From publisher description

Project Nim Le projet Nim by James Marsh( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Novembre 1973. Nim, un bébé chimpanzé naît en captivité dans un centre de recherche sur les primates. Dix ans après la parution du livre 'La planète des singes', un éminent professeur de l'Université de Columbia fait l'expérience de confier ce tout jeune chimpanzé à une famille humaine pour étudier sa capacité d'apprentissage du langage. Le Projet Nim est alors lancé : il s'agit de prouver qu'un chimpanzé est capable d'apprendre à communiquer par le langage s'il est élevé dans un environnement humain. Grâce à ce professeur de psychologie, le primate est censé être initié à la langue des signes, puis acquérir des rudiments de vocabulaire et de grammaire lui permettant de faire part de ses réflexions et de ses émotions. En cas de succès, il serait donc permis d'espérer franchir la barrière de l'espèce et la même de repenser la question de la condition humaine..." [Source : jaquette]
