“In this paper we propose a model of early constructional abilities of human and nonhuman Primates and show how the model applies to the data available in the relative literature, that we review. We also compare our model with primatological models of object combination and tool use. We finally consider what the archaeological record on structures allows us to hypothesize about the evolution of constructional abilities in the Homo species.”
Key words – Allocentric frame, Body reference, Constructions, Primates, Spatial reasoning.
