Abstract:

Sue Savage-Rumbaugh's work on the language capabilities of the bonobo Kanzi
has intrigued the world because of its far-reaching implications for
understanding the evolution of the human language. This book takes the
reader behind the scenes of the filmed language tests. It argues that while
the tests prove that Kanzi has language, the even more remarkable manner in
which he originally acquired it - spontaneously, in a culture shared with
humans - calls for a re-thinking of language, emphasizing its primal
cultural dimensions.
