New Book from Prof. Phil Lieberman: The Unpredictable Species

Professor Emeritus Phil Lieberman has published a new book, The Unpredictable Species. Prof. Lieberman argues that the human brain evolved in a way that enhances our cognitive flexibility and capacity for innovation and imitation. In doing so, he challenges the central claim of evolutionary psychology that we are locked into predictable patterns of behavior that were fixed by genes, and refutes the claim that language is innate.
