William Tecumseh Sherman Fitch III (born 1963) is an American evolutionary biologist and cognitive scientist at the University of Vienna (Vienna, Austria) where he is co-founder of the Department of Cognitive Biology. Fitch studies the biology and evolution of cognition and communication in humans and other animals, and in particular the evolution of speech, language and music. His work concentrates on comparative approaches as advocated by Charles Darwin (i.e., the study of homologous and analogous structures and processes in a wide range of species).

  • William Tecumseh Sherman Fitch III (born 1963) is an American evolutionary biologist and cognitive scientist at the University of Vienna (Vienna, Austria) where he is co-founder of the Department of Cognitive Biology. Fitch studies the biology and evolution of cognition and communication in humans and other animals, and in particular the evolution of speech, language and music. His work concentrates on comparative approaches as advocated by Charles Darwin (i.e., the study of homologous and analogous structures and processes in a wide range of species). Fitch was born in Boston and received his B.A. (1986) in biology and his Ph.D. (1994) in Cognitive and Linguistic Sciences from Brown University. From 1996 to 2000, he worked as a Postdoctoral fellow at MIT and Harvard University. He was a lecturer at Harvard University and a reader at the University of St Andrews, before moving to a professorship at the University of Vienna in 2009. He bears the name of his third generation great grandfather, Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman, as did his father and grandfather before him. (en)
  • William Tecumseh Fitch III (Boston, 1963) é um biólogo e cientista da cognição estadunidense, professor da Universidade de Viena, onde é co-fundador do Departamento de Biologia Cognitiva. Ele estuda a biologia e a evolução da cognição e comunicação em humanos e outros animais e, em particular, a evolução da fala, linguagem e música. Seu trabalho concentra-se em abordagens comparativas, como preconizado por Charles Darwin. A pesquisa mais reconhecida de Fitch diz respeito à capacidade de fala dos macacos. Ele fez com que um macaco chamado Emiliano emitisse vários sons enquanto estava sujeito à gravação de vídeo em raio-X para estabelecer um modelo das partes de seu corpo que realizaram sons. Este trabalhou determinou quais vogais Emiliano poderia e não poderia produzir. (pt)
