Nlp Isn't New

I heard that NLP is one of the newest sciences , but I don't think that is true .
I read in history about a lot of people who were using the skills of this science  or very similar skills .

NLP isn't exactly a science, it is a technique to turn skills and techniques into a model that can be taught to others.

The skills and techniques are old, skills we probably had when we all lived in caves but we never possessed a method of transferring skills that is as efficient as NLP.

Many threads of thought have been gathered together to form the area of interest that has been given the fairly new name of NLP. There are some techniques which are more or less unprecedented, but many are derived from diverse areas that have a considerably longer history. Ancient greek sophistry is one of the sources of language study actively pursued in the world of NLP, though the average practitioner might not be aware of this.

There are a lot of things that a lot of people have done, or just a few, during history.<br />

Which is quite unrelated to whether these doings have been studied, analysed, *modeled* in fact so that other people can do them too, or avoid doing them, as the case may be.<br />
