Una historia natural del pensamiento humano

Michael Tomasello
Ciencias Sociales

«Haciendo una revisión de su trabajo anterior, Tomasello argumenta que los simios están cognitivamente mucho más cerca de los humanos de lo que se creía hace solo una década. La gran virtud de Una historia natural del pensamiento humano es su análisis conceptual de los pasos acumulativos que se requirieron en términos de cognición para transformarnos de simios en humanos.» —Stephen Levinson, Science

Descripción en inglés

“Reviewing his earlier work, Tomasello argues that apes are cognitively much closer to humans than was thought only a decade ago. The great virtue of this book is its conceptual analysis of the cumulative steps required in terms of cognition to transform us from apes into humans.”

Stephen Levinson, Science

In “Una historia natural del pensamiento humano,” Michael Tomasello argues that cooperative social interaction is the key to human cognitive uniqueness. Once our ancestors learned to think together to achieve common goals, the human race forged an evolutionary path of its own. Our human ancestors, like the great apes of today, were social beings who could solve problems through thought, but were competitive and worked only towards their individual goals. As ecological changes forced them to be more cooperative, early humans had to coordinate their actions and communicate their thoughts, engendering new forms of collaborative interaction. The shared intentionality hypothesis that Tomasello proposes in this book explains how these more socially complex forms of life led to conceptually more complex forms of thought. In order to survive, humans had to learn to see the world from multiple social perspectives, to make socially recursive inferences, and to monitor their own thinking according to the normative standards of the group. Even language and culture arose from the pre-existing need to work together. “Una historia natural del pensamiento humano,” is the most detailed scientific analysis published to date of the connection between human sociability and cognition.
