Terrence Deacon, “The Symbolic Species: The Co-Evolution of Language and the Brain“, 1997 was the topic of an earlier blog post. Here I present: Wassily Kandinsky, “Point and Line to Plane”, 1926 was a theory book by the Russian painter.
Wassily Kandinsky described the “point” as a result of initial collision of “the tool” with the ” “material plane”. In prehistory, graphic art (paint/sculpt) occurred before literary art (writing). Cooking (culinary art) is believed to have resulted human speech (due to larger brains).
Wassily Kandinsky, “Point and Line to Plane”, 1926 was a theory book by the Russian painter.
Depiction was the subject of the artist treatise on painting as an expressive art. Depiction “point and line to plane”(graphic art) is comparable to ”abc” (speaking)…”do re me”(singing) in symbolic thinking.
The “thinking traits” (depiction, speaking, singing) associated with the increase in cranial volume in human evolution resulting from cooking of food.
