Subject: Neanderthals and Rhetoric!

I am working with a student on the question of the way in which
Neanderthals have been seen over time as human or non-human.  We are
interested in the way in which this question has been modulated by the use
of rhetoric and by different forms of pictorial representation.  If any
correspondents have any suggestions as to relevant references, either on
the history of ideas about the Neanderthals, or on the more general
question of the use of rhetoric in science (or better still
biology/palaeoanthropology), we should be most pleased to hear from you.
    Sincerely,
    David Oldroyd,
