Humans are unusual. We walk upright and build cities. We travel from continent to continent in hours. We communicate across the globe in an instant. We alone can build bombs and invent medicines. Why can we do all these things that other creatures can’t? What makes us so different from other species?
You may think you can talk to the animals, but our ability to use language separates us from other species. Without it, we wouldn’t have the talent for collective learning that allows us to dominate the biosphere.
