附註 "Artifacts are hybrids, both natural and cultural. They are also an essential component in the context of human evolution. In recent years, a wide range of disciplines including cognitive science, sociology, art history, and anthropology have all grappled with the nature of artifacts, leading to the emergence of a renewed interdisciplinary focus on material culture. Artifacts: An Archaeological Perspective develops an argument for the artifact as a status conferred by human engagement with material. On this basis artifacts are considered first in terms of their relationship to concepts and cognitive functions and then to the physical body and sense of self. The book builds on and incorporates latest developments in archaeological research, particularly from the archaeology of human evolution, and integrates this wealth of new archaeological data with new research in fields such as cognitive science, haptics, and material culture studies. Artifacts: An Archaeological Perspective makes the latest research available for the general reader interested in material culture, whilst also providing archaeologists with new theoretical perspectives built on a synthesis of interdisciplinary research. The book was developed in the context of courses taught for both graduate and undergraduate students and is broadly accessible"-- Provided by publisher
