  • Insight in the evolution of human cognition can be obtained through researching apes. 
  • Only humans have emotions.
  • In Japan, robots have a soul. 

These and more theses will be discussed by the Japanese and Dutch primatologists Tetsuro Matsuzawa and Jan van Hooff in the special ambience of the Leiden SieboldHuis.
