(p.1) Introduction
The Speciation of Modern Homo Sapiens

Tim J. Crow

British Academy

This book reflects an attempt to cross the interdisciplinary boundaries between archaeology, palaeontology, neuropsychology, neuroanatomy, genetics and evolutionary theory to approach the problem of the origins of modern Homo sapiens. It argues that scrutiny of the origin of our species casts speciation, and maybe evolutionary theory as it now stands, in a critical light. This chapter considers man's place in evolutionary theory, F. M. Muller's critique of Darwinian theory, whether language required a macro-mutation, and the status of saltations in evolutionary theory.

Keywords:   Homo sapiens, speciation, Darwinian theory, evolution, F. M. Muller, saltation
