This article explains the evolution of human language and the brain. There are many ways organisms can adapt to moving targets. One of the ways is genetic evolution, when natural selection acts on variation in the population, selecting against those alleles that provide the least fit to the environment. The second way is by utilizing the phenotypic plasticity of a by: 8.

Indeed, linguistic change is vastly more rapid than genetic change (e.g., the entire Indo-European language group has diverged in less t years 12).

A second series of simulations revealed the evolutionary impact of such rapid linguistic change: genes cannot evolve fast enough to keep up with this “moving target.”. The book begins with some general frameworks for discussing optimality, or the lack of it, in biological or artificial systems.

The next set of chapters deals with some general mathematical and computational theories that help to clarify what the notion of optimality might entail in specific classes of networks.
