What is Generative Anthropology?

Generative Anthropology (GA) hypothesizes that the origin of language and human culture occurred in a single event. This hypothesis forms the basis for an anthropomorphics, a "human science" which provides a radically minimal and powerful vocabulary that can explain all cultural, social, and political phenomena as articulations of the basic speech forms (ostensive -> imperative -> declarative). This new human science gives us a lens through which we can recognize the inherent paradoxes in both reductionist biological accounts and overloaded religious accounts of the origin of the human.

This wikipedia serves as an interconnected glossary of terms for students of this new human science.
