Description - Creativity in Human Evolution and Prehistory by Steven Mithen
Creativity in Human Evolution and Prehistory throws new light on the life and behaviour of the earliest humans. It offers unique perspectives on the nature of human creativity from some of the most respected scholars working in this field. The contributors consider the question of whether humans are the only species capable of thinking creatively, or whether there is evidence our extinct relatives, such as the Neanderthals, displayed creativity. Using diverse sources of evidence, they analyse the way the dead were buried, monuments created and the natural world exploited to explore exactly what these changes reveal about the prehistoric mind and its creative abilities.
