About this book

Humans depend more than any other animal on technology, but why is this so? Kuhn turns to the Middle Palaeolithic (Mouseterian) and to artifacts associated with Neanderthals, and examines the ecological, economic, and strategic factors that shaped the behaviour of Mouseterian tool makers, revealing how these hominids brought technological knowledge to bear on the basic problems of survival.
