Rate this:
In "Symbolic Species", Terrence Deacon departs from the conventional theories which state that language arose, somehow, once the human brain became large and complex enough. He argues that the brain and language developed in concert, explains how the process occurred, and draws out the compelling implications of this new view of human origins. Photos and drawings.
