Sample text

Original work published 1934).

Some archaic cultural leap, deep in our prehistory, must somehow have set the stage for our later transition toward a symbolizing mind.  Only much later are they able to think in silence or, in the case of deaf signers, without moving their hands.  The direction of flow is clear: from the culture to the individual mind, that is, outside– inside.  Thus, we find the deepest origins of our capacity for symbolic thought in action—in fact, Page 34 in a primal, extraverted expressive process, mimesis, that was based entirely in externalized actions.

This is not at all the same as the claim made by Dawkins (1989) when he proposed his concept of the meme.  Thus Dawkins remains a traditional cognitive solipsist.  Under some circumstances, these processes can establish, in the brain of the developing child, operational systems that make it possible to interact with, and use, the cognitive instruments of literate culture.  Pathways that are normally encumbered for vision might be diverted in this case and employed by competition and displacement for other cognitive functions.
