Cultural intelligence is key to explaining human tool use

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 35 (4):242-243 (2012)

Contrary to Vaesen, we argue that a small number of key traits are sufficient to explain modern human tool use. Here we outline and defend the cultural intelligence (CI) hypothesis. In doing so, we critically re-examine the role of social transmission in explaining human tool use
