Book's Abstract. Non–human primates have been perceived and classified with different approaches according to different cultural and philosophical traditions throughout the centuries. This book contains contributions that illustrate various aspects of the development of non-human primate natural history, starting from the ancient Greek world, through the Renaissance and European expansion, to the rise of Darwinism and finally to the work of Italian, French, Spanish and Portuguese scholars of the 20th and 21th centuries, concluding with an original work regarding the role of images in primate taxonomy and conservation.
