Thanks for the reference, Mike! Yes, I know that there has been some
kind of an avalanche. Thatīs the reason why I am trying to put some

to a CHAT perspective such as those of Tomasello, Greenfield, Nelson,
among others, which are theorethically competitive with those of
Pinker, Bloom and others on the evolutionary psychology track.
