Like his countryman Rene Descartes, Buffon believed that the possession of reason and language distinguished humans from all other animals, and that to ignore the dualistic nature of the human condition was to ignore the noblest feature of our species (Spencer 1995; Corbey 2005). Twenty-three years later, in the 1758 edition of the Systema, Linnaeus responded to his critics by separating the various members of the genus Homo from all other animals and basing his classification not only on anatomical features but also on temperament, character, type of garments worn (if any), and forms of government.

The farms lie in the valleys below. The result is a pastoral landscape in which farmers toil in the fields while groups of baboons sit like vultures on the cliffs, grooming, playing, watching, and waiting for just the right moment to raid a cornfield or steal a baby goat. And if a farmer looks up, he sees—albeit at a distance—what few European or American scientists ever observed: an entire baboon group, going about its daily activities.
