Each behavior is a product of heredity and experience
TLDR
In "Phylogeny" Skinner maintains that ontogenetic contingencies can be well investigated and understood without analyzing the phylogenetic contingency that may have contributed to the evolution of the behavioral processes. Expand
Research Implications for Communication Deficiencies
TLDR
The knowledge and techniques resulting from the chimpanzee research have been applied to the training of retarded children and its implications for the prosthesis of communication deficiencies in the retarded and deaf are discussed. Expand
Further evidence concerning speech in Neandertal man
TLDR
It was found that cranial base morphology was not substantially different in the Neandertals from modem and Mesolithic groups, and there is no anatomic basis for suggesting an intermediate articulatory ability for the Rhodesian specimen. Expand

A review is given of the various approaches that, during the last decades, have been used to solve the question of speech origin during the vertebrate evolution. First, the evolutionary history ofExpand

Animal languages and human language.
TLDR
The only way to find out how human language differs from any variety of communicative behavior manifested by non-human or pre-human species is to itemize those design-features of human language which seem to be of crucial importance in making it possible for language to do what it does. Expand
