By Russell H. Tuttle
Situating people in a huge context, Tuttle musters proof from morphology and up to date fossil discoveries to bare what early primates ate, the place they slept, how they discovered to stroll upright, how mind and hand anatomy developed at the same time, and what else occurred evolutionarily to reason people to diverge from their closest relations. regardless of our genomic similarities with bonobos, chimpanzees, and gorillas, people are exact between primates in occupying a symbolic area of interest of values and ideology in accordance with symbolically mediated cognitive methods. even if apes express behaviors that strongly recommend they could imagine, salient components of human culture--speech, mating proscriptions, kinship constructions, and ethical codes--are symbolic platforms that aren't appear between apes. This encylopedic quantity is either a milestone in primatological examine and a critique of what's identified and but to be stumbled on approximately human and ape potential.
