Is it language that makes humans intelligent?

  • Jo Van Herwegen (a1) and Annette Karmiloff-Smith (a1)
Abstract

The target article by Locke & Bogin (L&B) focuses on the evolution of language as a communicative tool. They neglect, however, that from infancy onwards humans have the ability to go beyond successful behaviour and to reflect upon language (and other domains of knowledge) as a problem space in its own right. This ability is not found in other species and may well be what makes humans unique.
