”’Chimpanzee Politics”'(Power and Sex among Apes) is a book about the political behavior of chimpanzees by Dutch primate scholar [[Frans de Waal]].

He practiced a long-term analysis of chimpanzee behavior at the Arnhem Zoo in the Netherlands to write this book. He argued that chimpanzees are social animals that perform highly political activities such as coalition, reputation management, and conditional altruism. Chimpanzees’ social networks, like Homo sapiens, contain concepts of status, unity, unity, deception and reconciliation. The book concluded that human political activity "is likely to be part of an evolutionary legacy shared with our primate relatives."

”’Won Cheon-Seok”’, also known as Ungok, widely considered a political hermit during late Goryeo Dynasty to early Joseon Dynasty and has been known as the writer of Heohoga, a song of reminiscence of the past(i.e. Goryeo Dynasty) in Cheong-gu-young-un, a collective edition of Korean traditional poems. He was born Gaeseong in 1330. He was a bright child and excelled in school. He passed Jinsasi, a civil service exam in Goryeo when he was 27. However he was deterred from entering into government by the chaotic political circumstances in the late Goryeo. He once taught Lee Bang-won, who became King Taejong of Joseon Dynasty later. He was summoned several times and even paid a visit by Taejong himself when he took over the throne but Ungok refused to join the Cabinet. He lived in seclusion and remained as a man of integrity for all his life. In his later life he got interested in Taoism as well as Buddhism even though he was a confucius himself. He suggested the trinity of the three ideas called Sam-gyo-Il-Chi-ron. He wrote Ungoksisa, and edited Hwahaesajeon. Ungoksisa, reflected the society then and his philosophy as well. In the book, he argued the necessity to improve the system rather than replacing the dynasty and went on preaching that local officials should practice panel administration with mercy. Heo Mok also Known as Misoo once commented on Ungok’s life "An honorable man never takes off his interest in the world even though he is hiding from the world. Although Ungok forsook the world, he never took eyes off the world. He kept his spirit pure throughout his life and became a paragon of the generations to come.<ref>운곡 元天錫(원천석) 묘역 안내문.</ref><ref>《국어국문학자료사전》, 원천석(元天錫), 이응백 김원경 김선풍 공저, 한국사전연구사(1998년)</ref><ref>古琴(고금)/ 원천석 매일신문(2014.01.02) 기사 참조</ref><ref>이중연, 《’책’의 운명》 , 혜안, 2001년, 88 ~ 89쪽</ref>
