The final decade has seen an explosive burst of latest details about human origins and our evolutionary standing with respect to different species. We’ve lengthy been thought of distinctive as upright, bipedal creatures endowed with language, the power to make use of instruments, to assume and introspect. We now know that different creatures could also be more or much less able to comparable behaviour, and that these human capacities in lots of circumstances have lengthy evolutionary trajectories. Our details about such issues comes from a various number of disciplines, together with experimental and neuropsychology, primatology, ethology, archaeology, palaeontology, comparative linguistics and molecular biology.
