What is meant here is the much more basic question of whether we as humans
have the right to boast of being a genuine exception to the known mechanisms of
biological evolution. Even the trained physiologist Jared Diamond, from whose
book The Third Chimpanzee (1992) — meant is our own species because of its
close genetic relationship with the chimpanzee and the bonobo (Diamond
suggests to include the last two species into the genus Homo, resulting in the
new species ...

The Third Chimpanzee in the Ordinary Business of Life Occasionally a synthesis
transforms a discipline so profoundly that later generations will not remember it
as synthetic. They will know just the elements that endure in textbook passages.
Two examples come to mind: On the Origins of Species (Darwin 1859) and The
General Theory of Employment, Money and Interest (Keynes 1936). Charles
Darwin (1859:63) credits Thomas Malthus' An Essay on the Principle of

Third. Chimpanzee. The next time you visit a zoo, make a point of walking by the
ape cages. Imagine that the apes had lost most of their hair, and imagine a cage
nearby holding some unfortunate people who had no clothes and couldn't speak
but were otherwise normal. Now try guessing how similar those apes are to us in
their genes. For instance, would you guess that a chimpanzee shares 10 percent,
50 percent, or 99 percent of its genetic program with humans? —Jared Diamond

This fact was brought home most forcibly to popular culture when Jared Diamond
, in his best seller of the early 1990s, declared that "we are just a third species of
chimpanzee" and titled his book The Third Chimpanzee. His initial sentences
explaining this claim inform his readers that "the genetic distance (1.6 percent)
separating us from pygmy or common chimps is barely double that separating
pygmy from common chimps (0.7 percent). It's less than that between two species
