This volume combining the voices of evolutionary scientists and theological thinkers provided an opportunity to consider broader perspectives on human origins and the evolution of culture and sociality. Our chapter discusses a few of the questions that underlie our current research in the Rising Star cave system, including questions about how to understand evidence of behavior in the multi-hominin context of Middle Pleistocene Africa.
