This collective volume brings together selected contributions to the symposium on “Mirror Neurons and the
Evolution of Brain and Language”. Themeeting took place July 5–8, 2000, at the premises and with the financial
support of the Hanse Institute for Advanced Study, Delmenhorst, Germany. The aim of the symposium was to discuss the status of the recent scientific discovery of the so called ‘mirror neurons’ and its potential consequences, more specifically from the point of view of our understanding of the evolution of brain, aspects of social intelligence (like imitation, behavioral and communicative role identification and theory of mind) and language from monkeys to primates to humans.
