    I'm just starting The Symbolic Species: The co=evolution of Language and the
    Brain by Terrence W. Deacon. Have many of you read it? What did you think
    of his approach and the use of the term "symbol" to mean much the same thing
    we use meme to mean? He seems to have pretty good credentials but his
    bibliography seems to have a number of notable omissions.
