To understand who we are and why we are, we need to understand both our modern self, and our past. Reflecting on the Academy’s Centenary Research Project From Lucy to language, Professors Robin Dunbar FBA, Clive Gamble FBA and John Gowlett discuss how their research into the evolution of human cognition and social lives over the ages furthered our understanding of the relationship between mind and world.
