  • Boydstun changed the title to Becoming Human: A Theory of Ontogeny

For unknown reason, the link did not hold up. I'll try again:

Becoming Human: A Theory of Ontogeny

The title of that first book should have been:

A Natural History of Human Thinking

From the publisher:

"Tool-making or culture, language or religious belief: ever since Darwin, thinkers have struggled to identify what fundamentally differentiates human beings from other animals. In this much-anticipated book, Michael Tomasello weaves his twenty years of comparative studies of humans and great apes into a compelling argument that cooperative social interaction is the key to our cognitive uniqueness. Once our ancestors learned to put their heads together with others to pursue shared goals, humankind was on an evolutionary path all its own."
