Locating early homo and homo erectus tool production along the extractive foraging/cognitive continuum

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (3):414-415 (2002)
This commentary contests Wynn's diagnosis of the cognitive implications of the earliest stone tools and Acheulian tools. I argue that the earliest stone tools imply greater cognitive abilities than those of great apes, and that Acheulian tools imply more than the preoperational cognitive abilities Wynn suggests. Finally, I suggest an alternative adaptive scenario for the evolution of hominid cognitive abilities.
