Abstract:

Constant exchange of information is integral to our societies. Jean-Louis
Dessalles explores how this came into being. He develops a view of language
as an instrument for conversation rather than mental representation and
thought. Presenting language evolution as a natural history of
conversation, the author sheds light on the emergence of communication in
the hominine congregations, as well as on the human nature.
