Book chapter excerpt on human distinctiveness in Norwegian weekly

In the current issue of the Norwegian weekly newspaper Morgenbladet, 28 June - 4 July, a 2-page book chapter excerpt written by Norwegian biologist Dag Hessen titled "Menneskets særpreg" [Man's distinctiveness] is published. The essay is a revised and abbreviated version of Hessen's chapter in our recently published book Hvem er villest i landet her? Råskap mot dyr og natur i antropocen, menneskets tidsalder [Who is wildest in this country here? Brutality towards animals and nature in the Anthropocene, the age of Man], edited by Ragnhild Sollund, Guri Larsen and myself, and there is a reference to our book at the end of the essay. 

Morgenbladet has about 100.000 readers (not to be confused with subscribers).

An orangutang ear, hardly distinguishable from a human ear.
