The Rise of Homo sapiens is an introduction to human cognitive evolution written by psychologist Frederick L. Coolidge and archaeologist Thomas Wynn. The text differs from other treatments of cognitive evolution in its reliance on the archaeological record, and its emphasis on working memory, the most thoroughly investigated cognitive model of the last half-century.
