Book - 1991
Rate this:
Science journalist John McCrone shows how the evolution of language in man's ape ancestors led to an explosion of mental abilities. Analyzing such aspects of the human mind as memory, imagination, higher emotion, thought, and self-consciousness, The Ape That Spoke will fascinate all who are intrigued by phenomena as apparently diverse as deja vu, whether we see things as they really are, and the meaning of self-awareness.
