Descartes boldly claimed: 'I think, therefore I am'. But one might well ask: Why do we think? How? When and why did our human ancestors develop language and culture? In other words, what makes the human mind human? 'Evolution of Mind and Culture' offers a comprehensive and scientific investigation of these perennial questions. Fourteen essays bring together the work of archaeologists, cultural and physical anthropologists, psychologists, philosophers, geneticists, a neuroscientist, and an environmental scientist to explore the evolution of the human mind, the brain, and the human capacity for culture

From ancient to modern : archaeology and aesthetics by New York University( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As archaeologists unearth the past, they seek meaning or purpose for the objects they uncover by looking at the objects themselves and their archaeological context. Art historians, on the other hand, primarily focus on aesthetics, asking why a particular object stimulates our senses, and what that tells us about ourselves. From Ancient to Modern offers a lens for understanding ancient objects through the perspectives and processes of both archaeology and aesthetics, and, in so doing, illuminates the multiple layers of meaning that a single object can take on--sometimes simultaneously--over the course of its existence. This beautifully illustrated volume is the accompanying catalog for the exhibition at New York University's Institute for the Study of the Ancient World and focuses on fifty objects from three iconic sites in the ancient Near East: Ur, Diyala, and Kish. The excavation, unique characteristics, and transformative journey of each object--from archaeological artifact to aesthetic item--are examined. Select contemporary artworks are also considered in the investigation of how ancient objects acquire meaning in the present day."--Publisher's website

Sealing at the edge of third millennium middle Asian interaction spheres: The view from Gilund, Rajasthan, India by Marta Elena Ameri( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The analysis of contacts and interactions has always played an important role in archaeological studies. Models developed by archaeologists seek to explain the presence of non-native artifacts in indigenous cultures and reconstruct the processes that brought them there. In January 2003, excavators working at Gilund, an Ahar-Banas culture site located in the Indian province of Rajasthan, uncovered a cache of seal impressions that strongly resemble material known from Southeastern Iran and Central Asia. While the use of seals for administration has a long history in the ancient Near East, the seals and sealings uncovered at Gilund present us with a class of materials and a technology that were heretofore unknown in this part of South Asia. The sites of the Ahar-Banas were located far from the urban centers of Iran and Central Asia and had limited contact with these areas. Nonetheless, the discoveries at Gilund suggest that the people of this region were aware of the technologies and iconographies of lands far to their west, and in fact adapted them to their own needs
