CARTA: Tool Use & Technology: Dorothy Fragaszy - Tool Use by Non-Human Primates

12/5/2018; 16 minutes

This symposium addresses the interactive gene-culture co-evolution of the human brain with tool use and technology - ranging from simple stone tools millions of years ago to computers today. Dorothy Fragaszy, University of Georgia, compares tool use in nonhuman primates and humans which leads to ideas about the attributes of humans that have led us to differ so dramatically from other primates in technical prowess and technical traditions. Recorded on 10/12/2018. (#34190)
