Apes, language, and the human mind by E. Sue Savage-Rumbaugh( )

29 editions published between 1988 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 1,564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current primate research has yielded stunning results that not only threaten our underlying assumptions about the cognitive and communicative abilities of nonhuman primates, but also bring into question what it means to be human. At the forefront of this research, Sue Savage-Rumbaugh recently has achieved a scientific breakthrough of impressive proportions. Her work with Kanzi, a laboratory-reared bonobo, has led to Kanzi's acquisition of linguistic and cognitive skills similar to those of a two and a half year-old human child. Apes, Language, and the Human Mind skillfully combines a fascinating narrative of the Kanzi research with incisive critical analysis of the research's broader linguistic, psychological, and anthropological implications. This new volume offers a radical revision of the sciences of language and mind, and will be important reading for all those working in the fields of primatology, anthropology, linguistics, philosophy of mind, and cognitive and developmental psychology

Kanzi's primal language : the cultural initiation of primates into language by Pär Segerdahl( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sue Savage-Rumbaugh's work on the language capabilities of the bonobo Kanzi has intrigued the world because of its far-reaching implications for the evolution of the human language. Kanzi's Primal Language takes the reader behind the scenes of the famous language tests that were performed on Kanzi and featured in popular television documentaries. Showing how Kanzi originally acquired language when he was a young ape - spontaneously in a culture that he shared with humans - this compellingly written book offers important new insights into how culture and language interlace in early childhood. The reader is helped by a novel catalogue of design features of language codifying salient features of Kanzi's language and their concordance with human language." "In their penetrating study of how culture shapes first-language acquisition, the authors present a well-founded hypothesis of a gene-culture coevolution of human language, and a thought-provoking discussion of the place of science in human culture."--Jacket
Dialogues on the human ape by Laurent Dubreuil( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A primatologist and a humanist together explore the meaning of being a "human animal." Humanness is typically defined by our capacity for language and abstract thinking. Yet decades of research led by the primatologist Sue Savage-Rumbaugh has shown that chimpanzees and bonobos can acquire human language through signing and technology. Drawing on this research, Dialogues of the Human Ape brings Savage-Rumbaugh into conversation with the philosopher Laurent Dubreuil to explore the theoretical and practical dimensions of what being a "human animal" means. In their use of dialogue as the primary mode of philosophical and scientific inquiry, the authors transcend the rigidity of scientific and humanist discourses, offering a powerful model for the dissemination of speculative hypotheses and open-ended debates grounded in scientific research. Arguing that being human is an epigenetically driven process rather than a fixed characteristic rooted in genetics or culture, this book suggests that while humanness may not be possible in every species, it can emerge in certain supposedly nonhuman species. Moving beyond irrational critiques of ape consciousness that are motivated by arrogant, anthropocentric views, Dialogues on the Human Ape instead takes seriously the continuities between the ape mind and the human mind, addressing why language matters to consciousness, free will, and the formation of the "human animal" self

Chimp talk( Visual )

7 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Producer) This program explores the controversial issue of language use by apes with primatologist Dr. Sue Savage-Rumbaugh and Dr. Laura Ann Petitto. The results of Savage-Rumbaugh's 20-year study with chimpanzees reveal that they can use language with the astounding accuracy of a two-year-old human, which includes a rudimentary syntactical ability. However, Petitto's research indicates that humans have a cognitive predisposition for language lacking in chimps, which leads to the conclusion that although apes communicate by associating symbols with objects and actions, they do not have language abilities in the way that humans do

Filmed at the Language Research Center, Georgia State University, this video tests the linguistic and intellectual differences among members of a pygmy chimpanzee (Pan paniscus) family resulting from different rearing experiences. Scenes were selected to reflect the normal everyday competencies of the research subjects. The chimps show comprehension of spoken word, lexigrams, and sentences. Other behaviors shown include: play, solving video mazes, and tool use (creating a stone flake as a cutting tool). Written and narrated by Dr. Sue Savage-Rumbaugh
