Product description

Review

What makes human thinking unique? Michael Tomasello's clear and elegant new book demonstrates once more his ability to draw on his experimental work with apes and children to offer major new insights into the evolutionary origins of human cognition. --Dan Sperber, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Paris

"Tomasello has spent a lifetime conducting similar tests on both great apes such as chimpanzees and on humans of different ages, in order to pin down exactly where our capacities differ. In this difficult but rewarding book, he attempts to place these results into a grand theory of how and why these differences evolved." --Stephen Cave, Financial Times, 7th February 2014

"Tomasello convincingly sets out how "shared intentionality", in which social complexity spawned conceptual complexities, sets us apart" --Nature, 6th February 2014

About the Author

Michael Tomasello is Co-Director of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany.
