blurb

Human language is the most important evolutionary leap from great ape to human. The book discusses selected content on "human history" and language development. Information from scientific sources was taken into account as up-to-date as possible and edited in such a way that it is understandable for the reader interested in human history and language. The thematic explanations are supplemented by colored illustrations of works of art. While the text provides the reader with an interpretation of the content of the main theme of the book, the works of art open up a space in which the same theme can be individually interpreted.
