Situating people in a large context, Tuttle musters facts from morphology and up to date fossil discoveries to bare what early primates ate, the place they slept, how they realized to stroll upright, how mind and hand anatomy advanced at the same time, and what else occurred evolutionarily to reason people to diverge from their closest kin. regardless of our genomic similarities with bonobos, chimpanzees, and gorillas, people are distinct between primates in occupying a symbolic area of interest of values and ideology in keeping with symbolically mediated cognitive approaches. even supposing apes show behaviors that strongly recommend they could imagine, salient parts of human culture--speech, mating proscriptions, kinship constructions, and ethical codes--are symbolic structures that aren't appear between apes. This encylopedic quantity is either a milestone in primatological learn and a critique of what's recognized and but to be stumbled on approximately human and ape potential.
