Evolutionary mechanisms of teaching

Gärdenfors, Peter LU and Högberg, Anders LU (2015) In Behavioral and Brain Sciences 38. p.41-41
Abstract (Swedish)
Abstract in Undetermined

We argue that Kline's analysis does not account for the evolutionary mechanisms that can explain the uniqueness of human teaching. We suggest that data should be complemented by an analysis of archaeological material with respect to what forms of teaching are required for the transmission of technologies over generations.
