Anima: 1991–1993


With genes found to be 98.4% identical to Homo sapiens, chimpanzees are our link to the animal kingdom. Published in 1993, James Balog’s Anima (a title derived from the thinking of C. G. Jung and James Hillman) challenges our ancient cultural assumptions about humanity’s lofty perch in the world. Anima asks us to re-imagine and re-create a healthier, more integrated relationship between humans and nature.
