Review of the book The Evolution of Thought

How has our thinking and therefore our worldview changed over time? One might assume that humanity's cognitive development is shaped primarily by changes in the brain. This also applies to most stages of human evolution: from about two million years ago until the first appearance of Homo sapiens in Africa 300,000 years ago. An evolution towards a larger and more complex thinking apparatus can also be observed in the next 265,000 years. However, this process appears to have remained stagnant over the past 35,000 years. The changes in perception and thinking since then do not appear to have a physiological basis.
