I am best-known for my theory that human language, religion and culture emerged in our species not simply by gradual Darwinian evolution but in a process culminating in revolutionary social change. The details of my scientific hypothesis remain controversial, but the underlying idea that symbolic culture emerged during a ‘major transition’ or ‘revolution’ (often termed the human revolution) has been current for many years and is now widely agreed.
