A weekly programme about work in the world of science
WHAT, IF ANYTHING, IS INSTINCT? by Niko Tinbergen
Department of Zoology University of Oxford
It used to be said that, while human behaviour is controlled by intelligence, animals are driven by instinct. The word was variously defined: any ' built-in ' mechanism; an inner urge '; actions that were not deliberate, or were unconsciously performed. Dr. Tinbergen describes some experiments showing how unhelpful these concepts really are.
