Man is an Animal

"Man is an animal because of his structure. But he is the highest animal and a human being because of the functioning of his nervous system. The hand of man differs only slightly from that of an ape - in the position and movement of the thumb - but the nervous system of man allows him to use the muscles and bones of his hand to do what anthropoid ape cannot do: the fine, manipulative, specifically human movements such as writing, playing an instrument, counting bank notes, repairing a watch, or focusing a microscope.
(Moshé Feldenkrais)

Der Mensch ist ein Tier aufgrund seiner Struktur. Aber er ist das höchste der Tiere und ein Mensch aufgrund der Funktionsweise seines Nervensystems.
