Evolutionary foundations of human uniqueness

In 2014, IHO began an ambitious research program funded by the John Templeton Foundation—a collaborative inquiry into the evolutionary foundations of human uniqueness. The $4.9 million, three-year grant, the largest of its type for human origins research, supported 11 linked investigations of where, when, and how unique human capacities for complex cognition, cumulative culture, and large-scale cooperation emerged.
