about

There is a growing view that intelligence evolved as a product of social independence and that intelligence was linked to the use of spoken language. Taking as their starting-point the social production of intelligence and of language, scholars from a range of disciplines are beginning to rethink fundamental questions about human evolution, language and social institutions. In this volume, anthropologists, linguists, primatologists and pychologists come together to work on this new frontier of research.
