Product description


An interesting attempt to probe the long-term history of feeling as well as of thought... [This] book is intelligent, important and clear. Anyone who likes to ask broad questions about intelligence, religion and experience, as well as anyone interested in long-term human history, will be able to read and argue with [this] book with enjoyment and profit. (THES (3/3/06))

There is much illuminating and thought-provoking material. (Ross Leckie THE TIMES)

Wonderfully evocative... a highly original view of our musical origins. (GUARDIAN (1/4/06))

Book Description

A fascinating and incisive examination of our language instinct from award-winning science writer Steven Mithen.
