The Referential Problem Space revisited: An ecological hypothesis of the evolutionary and developmental origins of pointing
Published Online: Jan 28 2021
DOI: 10.1002/wcs.1554
Pathways into the Referential Problem Space. Apes and humans display tool‐using competencies by the end of the first year of life. Humans (top pathway) are motorically slow to develop throughout infancy and subjected to culturally specific patterns of restraint. In these conditions of endogenous and exogenous constraint, children apply their developing tool‐using skills to the manipulation of their caregivers, including the use of pointing. In contrast, great apes in the wild (bottom pathway) develop locomotor independence much earlier, before the onset of tool‐using competency, and therefore almost never encounter a situation in which they can only access some entity with the help of another agent. Captive apes (middle two pathways), by virtue of their ubiquitous containment by cash mesh and cage bars, are placed into the Referential Problem Space, and in this ecological context, pointing emerges.
