The contributions to this volume reflect the state of the art in the
renewed discussion on the origin of language. Some of the most
important specialists in the field - life scientists and linguists -
primarily examine two aspects of the question: the origin of the
language faculty and the evolution of the first language. At stake is
the relation between nature and culture and between universality and
historical particularity as well as cognition, communication, and the
very essence of language.
