Even Dawkins gets it wrong sometimes…

Not really language evolution per se, but Edge, the online intellectual magazine has a fascinating feature in which they’ve asked the world’s big name intellectuals “what have you got wrong?” The answers offer some great insights into the people behind the names, with some very open and honest answers.  Marc Hauser’s reflections on the limits of Darwinism are particularly interesting. Here are the entries for those famous names (distantly) connected with language evolution:

Richard Dawkins, Steven Pinker, Irene Pepperberg, David Sloane-Wilson, Daniel Dennet, Marc Hauser
