Text Box: What precisely is language, and how did humans acquire it? In an effort to answer those essential questions, this program journeys back to prehistoric times in search of language’s origin. But this is not a passive discussion. Noam Chomsky, Brown University’s Philip Lieberman, Johanna Nichols of U.C. Berkeley, Stanford University’s Merritt Ruhlen, professor of anthropology Richard Klein, Nobel physicist Murray Gell-Mann and others passionately defend their points of view. Additional topics include distinguishing features of human communication and what humankind’s first utterances may have been. The early evolution and migration of humans and the development of the human brain is also considered.
