Here is an example where he takes a paper which suggests that perhaps chimpanzees are just as apt toolmakers as some humans or that some humans are as bad as chimps at toolmakingwhich would seem to contradict the claims that the phases are distinct leaps forward that determine behaviour: I called these natural history, social and technical intelligences.
