The invention of writing systems made possible the extraordinary event of recording thoughts and passing them to new generations. While the faculty of language is a natural characteristic of our mind (such as vision, for instance), the faculty of writing is an artificial invention (such as a bridge). From an evolutionary point of view, we have good reasons to think that language emerged as an adaptive characteristic at some point during evolution , but we cannot say the same for writing. Writing must have been invented at some point, and there is no brain evolution in correspondence with this invention, contrary to language emergency, that has been undoubtedly generated by the evolution of our brain. What is interesting is that abilities connected to writing systems, such as reading, can be selectively disrupted leaving other language abilities intact.
