Uniquely Human by Philip Lieberman
Book DescriptionIn a synthesis of cognitive science, anthropology, and linguistics, Philip Lieberman approaches the fundamental questions of human nature: How and why are human beings so different from other species? Can the Darwinian theory of evolution explain human linguistic and cognitive behaviour? How do our language and thought processes differ from those of "Homo erectus" 500,000 years ago? What accounts for human moral sense? "Uniquely Human" aims to stimulate fresh thought on the basic question of how we came to be.

Toward an Evolutionary Biology of Language, Hardback (June 2006)
Draws on evidence from evolutionary biology, genetics, physical anthropology, anatomy, and neuroscience, to provide a framework for studying the evolution of human language and cognition. This work argues that the influential theories of language's development are inconsistent with principles and findings of evolutionary biology and neuroscience.
