Over recent years, a number of scholars have argued that the human
mind underwent a cognitive revolution in the Neolithic. This volume
seeks to test these claims at the Neolithic site of Catalhoeyuk in
Turkey and in other Neolithic contexts in the Middle East. It
brings together cognitive scientists who have developed theoretical
frameworks for the study of cognitive change, archaeologists who
have conducted research into cognitive change in the Neolithic of
the Middle East, and the excavators of the Neolithic site of
Catalhoeyuk who have over recent years been exploring changes in
consciousness, creativity and self in the context of the rich data
from the site. Collectively, the authors argue that when detailed
data are examined, theoretical evolutionary expectations are not
found for these three characteristics. The Neolithic was a time of
long, slow and diverse change in which there is little evidence for
an internal cognitive revolution.
