The Human Spark
After watch the movie “The Human Spark” from PBS
please address the following question: Is there a human spark? Is there a reason why today there is only one species Homo sapiens and is the past there was a variability of species? I am NOT asking what makes humans special compared to other animals but why are modern humans (the species which has been around 300,000 – 200,000 years) compared to other contemporary hominins such as Neanderthals, the hobbits (H. Floresiensis), etc. Can we say that these criteria are indeed unique to modern humans? How do you think it contributes to human uniqueness and the concept of the human spark?
