Generic relationships contributed to sapienization

Generic relationships contributed to sapienizationIt is believed that generic relations contributed to sapienization due to exogamy - the prohibition of sexual relations between members of the same community. In this way, perhaps even unconsciously, adverse  the genetic consequences of closely related marriages, and the persistence of offspring increased.

Thus, we see that at a certain stage of evolution, socialization provided, within certain limits, the fulfillment of the conditions necessary to maintain the constancy of the species and increase its number. In this regard, interesting figures characterize the growth of the number of hominids on Earth. Over 8 million years before our era, the population of the first hominids or their immediate ancestors presumably numbered about 5 million. In 1600, the population of the Earth was approximately 500 million people, in 1850 - 1 billion, in 1930 - 2 billion, in 1960 - 3 billion, in 1990 - 6 billion. This increase population uneven in different countries, which once again proves the great importance of social factors in the development of the human population. The increase depends on the level of development of the culture and economy of the country, the level of health care, and national and religious traditions.

It must be remembered that biological evolution is a biological form of the movement of matter, the evolution of society is social. Naturally, the social form of the movement of matter arose only with the advent of man, that is, relatively recently. Therefore, it is very difficult to establish the laws and direction of its development, as well as to predict the results of further human evolution.

Human sociality makes the study of many issues of anthropogenesis a problem not only biological, but also philosophical. The solution to this problem is closely related to the global problems of the existence of life on our planet (the problem of overpopulation, the environmental problem, the problem of interethnic and inter-religious conflicts, and so on). This is explained by the fact that the appearance of a person on Earth with his purposeful labor activity (sometimes without taking into account possible remote consequences) qualitatively changed the face of the planet and determined a new direction in the evolution of nature as a whole. In addition, the rapid growth of the human population and the results of human production gave rise to many global problems, the solution of which requires a review by society of the relationship to nature and rethinking of the place and role of man in the Earth's biosphere. In other words, the solutions to these problems lie in the social sphere.
