300,000 (AT LEAST) YEARS FOR HOMO SAPIENS TO DEVELOP WRITING
From the article just published in Psychology Research, “300,000 (at Least) Years for Homo Sapiens to Develop Writing: A Review of Silvia Ferrara’s The Greatest Invention, Tr. Todd Portnowitz“ to my presentation on Monday 20, November 2023 on DISJUNCTURE vs REVOLUTION, POSTGRESSION vs. PROGRESSION, the central question of the emergence of language and the passage from oral language to writing will be central in the IFIASA MCDSARE 2023 conference, Boerescu Zaharia, Târgoviște, Dâmbovița, Romania https://www.ifiasa.com/mcdsare-event
A video presentation covering the first part of the general topic with the newly discovered Hominin Homo Naledi in South Africa in the background, on the IFIASA site, presents this Hominin who had reached the level of transcribing his oral language into symbolical geometric signs around 300,000 BCE. Compare this with Neanderthals who did the same thing in Gibraltar around 100,000 BCE and with Homo Sapiens who did the same thing in his European and Indonesian caves around 45,000 BCE. Who is the bad pupil?
The second part on the phylogeny of language from the emergence of oral articulated language to the writing of all languages, the transfer from oral to visual engravings or symbols, will openly be the question of freedom and freedom of choice in archaeological times for Hominins.
The third part on the Versailles Treaty and how it still dictates the present and future of the world will be kept for publication, soon, I hope.
