While those who study human origns now agree that the evolution of the modern human form extends back much further in time than originally thought, they disagree sharply as to how to interpret the substantive data. The purpose of this volume is to examine those conceptual differences and to explore the reasons why a consensus might never be possible.

Table of Contents

Introduction - the conceptual framework; western perspectives - Latin Europe and the Levant; western perspectives - the Anglo-German research traditions; Asian perspectives; molecular biology and its implications; perspectives from evolutionary epistemology.
