Abstract: Some scholars defend that Neanderthals displayed a fully modern behavior, and they contend that those who do not share such a view are biased by an anthropocentric stance. We argue that the defense of a cognitive and behavioral asymmetry between Neanderthals and anatomically modern humans does not purport embracing an ideologically grounded position. In addition, we aim to explain that a methodological agenda, which we refer to as "radical continuism", underlies such a non-scientific derivation of the debate on recent human evolution.
