    Abstract:
    Spanish abstract: En su historia de la complejidad, de la humanidad y de la humanización (´El lugar del hombre en el cosmos´), Fred Spier se adhiere a una interesante teoría que podría explicar en parte la evolución del cerebro humano y algunas de sus peculiaridades cognitivas. A saber, la teoría de la encefalización por neotenia, o humanización altricial. _______________________________________________________________________________ English abstract: In his history of complexity, of mankind and of humanization ("Big History ad the Future of Humanity") Fred Spier adheres to an interesting theory which could partly explain the evolution of the human brain and some of its cognitive peculiarities—to wit, the theory of encephalization through neoteny, or altricial humanization. _______________________________________________________________________________ Keywords: Altricity, Neoteny, Evolution, Cognition, Evolution, Humanization, Human origins, Anthropology,
