RIBES-INESTA1, Emilio. In search of a radically psychological behavior theory: Response to Marino Pérez. Acta comport. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.1, pp.25-33. ISSN 0188-8145.

A theory of human behavior must be part of a theory including the behavior of organisms in phyla different even form animals. Human behavior is a synthesis of three emergent processes in the history of life in our planet: a) the emergence of neural tissue, b) the emergence of language, and c) the simultaneous emergence of social organization and labor division. Language, in human beings, allowed for the contingency-substitution functions, as an exclusive psychological emergence. It is examined the crucial role of language and name-attribution in the process of social identity as individual and person.

Keywords : evolution; language; social organization; attachment; person.
