This seminar will consider the evolution of cognitive skills from a variety of perspectives. One focus will be on hominid anatomical evolution, particularly those aspects relevant to the evolution of human behavior (e.g., neuroanatomy). Another focus will be on non-human primate behavior. We will also consider the archaeological evidence left by Pleistocene humans that may be relevant to this question. The goal of the seminar will be to integrate research from many fields of inquiry in order to gain a better understanding of the human condition.
