Dr. Desmond Morris

In honouring Dr. Desmond Morris, ISF celebrates one of the most original anthropologists of the twentieth century. The author of Manwatching and The Naked Ape, Morris regarded humanity as a zoologist would – as a species of primate. His work has not only stood the test of time, but it has in so many ways provided the foundations used by subsequent anthropologists. An acquaintance of Idries Shah, the two men enjoyed great mutual respect for each other’s thinking and work.
