Abstract

The transformation from a primarily holistic thinker to an analytical one has been suggested in my earlier works to be a fundamental part of the evolution of the fully modern Homo sapiens. This discussion will present a closer look at the mind of the human of the Upper Paleolithic as the impetus for an extensive, highly successful precursor culture. The paper will be an exercise in interpreting the archaeological record given a Peircean semiotic perspective and the assumption of the validity of the holistic/analytic dichotomy.
