Contents: When chimpanzees think : the way we were 7 million years ago? --
Upright posture but ape-sized brains : in the woodland between forest and savanna --
Triple startups about 2.5 million years ago : flickering climate, toolmaking, and bigger brains --
Homo erectus ate well : adding more meat to the diet fueled the first out of Africa --
The second brain boom : what kicked in, almost 750,000 years ago? --
Neanderthals and our pre-sapiens ancestors : two-stage toolmaking and what it says about thought --
Homo sapiens without the modern mind : the big brain but no much to show for it --
Structured thought finally appears : the curb-cut principle and emerging higher intellectual function --
From Africa to everywhere : was the still-full-of-bugs prototype what spread around the world? --
How creativity manages the mixups : higher intellectual function and the search for coherence --
Civilizing ourselves : from planting to writing to mind medicine --
What's sudden about the mind's big bang? : the moderns somehow got their act together --
Imagining the house of cards : inventing new levels of organization on the fly --
The future of the augmented mind : a combustible mixture of ignorance and power?
Responsibility: William H. Calvin.
