In a synthesis of cognitive science, anthropology, and linguistics, Philip Lieberman approaches the fundamental questions of human nature: How and why are human beings so different from other species? Can the Darwinian theory of evolution explain human linguistic and cognitive behaviour? How do our language and thought processes differ from those of "Homo erectus" 500,000 years ago? What accounts for human moral sense? "Uniquely Human" aims to stimulate fresh thought on the basic question of how we came to be.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lieberman has distilled the best of his twenty-five years of accumulated wisdom about man's unique gift of speech and has presented it here in much too readable a form to be limited to experts. I hope it reaches the broad audience it deserves." --George Miller, Princeton University
