Book brief summary
The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex
The importance of the work of Charles Darwin for the development of anthropology is difficult to overestimate. They do not come down to the well-known formula: "Man descended from a monkey." The undoubted significance of Darwin's work is that he generalized the neontological evidence of animal origin of man. Darwin is the author of the simial concept of anthropogenesis, which provides numerous evidence of the biological and behavioral similarities of modern humans and other primates. The scientist has advanced far in the analysis of the mechanisms of anthropogenesis, rightly believing that the factors of human biological evolution, as a zoological species, are fundamentally the same as in other animals. Darwin pays tribute to the specific nature of human biosocial nature, describing in detail the limitations in the operation of biological laws that are imposed by the social institutions that have developed and are developing in anthropogenesis of man. Darwin attached some importance to the labor factor in anthropogenesis. Describing natural selection as one of the driving forces of human evolution, Darwin first put forward its specific form of group selection, which contributed to the development of social ties in collectives units of society.
