About this book

Language: Dutch

You like to see yourself someone who independently thinks, gathers information, and takes decisions. Although you recognize that you are influenced by instinct and genes, you are so less than animals, let alone plants and trees. They can't move, don't think, don't take decisions, and don't cooperate the way higher organisms do. Or so you thought.

In this book, philosopher Th. C.W. Oudemans turns the tables based on philosophical ideas, recent scientific findings, and his own observations. Plants turn out to be intelligent after all. They manipulate, deceive, reward, strive, and cooperate. These remarkable insights reflect on man: there might be more plant in you than you realise...

Summary in Dutch:
U ziet uzelf graag als iemand die zelf nadenkt, informatie verzamelt en beslissingen neemt. U erkent wel dat u bepaald wordt door driften en genen, maar dan toch in mindere mate dan dieren. Laat staan planten en bomen. Zij kunnen niet bewegen, niet denken, nemen geen beslissingen en werken niet samen, zoals hogere organismen. Dacht U.

In dit boek zet filosoof Th.C.W. Oudemans dit uitgangspunt op zijn kop, aan de hand van ideeën van filosofen, recente wetenschappelijke bevindingen en eigen waarneming. Planten blijken wel degelijk intelligent te zijn. Ze manipuleren, bedriegen, belonen, streven en werken samen. Deze verbazingwekkende inzichten zeggen ook iets over de mens: u bent plantaardiger dan u wellicht denkt...
