Primates must navigate complex social landscapes in their daily lives: gathering information from and about others, competing with others for rewards like food and mates, and cooperating to obtain rewards as well. Although many species may exhibit similar behaviors in naturalistic contexts, the cognitive bases of the sophisticated behaviors that many primates exhibit can vary widely across species. In this article, we examine the psychology underlying primate social behavior in three situations: gaze-following, competing for food, and instrumental cooperation. In each of these domains, various primate gaze-follow, compete, and cooperate with great success - but experiments have revealed that the ways they do so can be quite diverse. These examples provide a framework for investigating social cognition from an evolutionary perspective that addresses why such different social-cognitive skills evolved across species.
