This chapter addresses the topics of human nature and human uniqueness. It argues that it is a mistake to conceptualize human nature as solely consisting of what is unique to humans, as most features of human psychology have homologs in other species. It also constrasts “one reason” theories of human uniqueness with theories that can account for the coevolution of many features of human psychology since the chimpanzee-human common ancestor.
