Abstract

It is generally acknowledged by those biologists who are concerned with the problem of human evolution that languages and material tools have played critical roles in the development of Homo sapiens from the earlier hominids. The philosophical study of languages has been vigorously and on the whole successfully pursued by Wittgenstein and his followers in England and the United States, but the equally important philosophical study of material tools has been neglected. The present study is intended to introduce an effort in that direction.
