It is our pleasure to welcome Simon Prentis, author of SPEECH! How Language Made Us Human, as our featured author for September. In his book, Simon offers a bold new theory for the emergence of language from animal communication, showing how a simple yet radical change was the key to everything that distinguishes humans from other species. He explores the growth of consciousness and the development of culture, religion and identity, and shows how the logic of language ultimately allows us to escape the inevitable traps they set for us.Simon's article is here: [grahamhancock.com]
