Kindische Geschichten

„Alles Gute wurde verdient und aus eigener Kraft erreicht. Alles Schlechte war ein hinterhältiger Anschlag von anderen.“

Internalisierung

The nervous system arose through one internalization of sensing and signaling, and the internalization of language as a tool for thinking was another. In both cases, a means of communication between organisms became a means of communication within them. These two events bookmark cognitive evolution as it has occured to date – one near its outset and one in recent times.
