&NA; The challenge of studying human cognitive evolution is identifying unique features of our intelligence while explaining the processes by which they arose. Comparisons with nonhuman apes point to our early‐emerging cooperative‐communicative abilities as crucial to the evolution of all forms of human cultural cognition, including language. The human self‐domestication hypothesis proposes that these early‐emerging social skills evolved when natural selection favored increased in‐group… Expand
