Our origin is related to certain biological and cultural acquisitions, among which the use of technology and social cohesion are the most relevant. We have been able to distribute throughout the entire planet, with an unstoppable increase in cultural complexity linked to very changing socio-economic expressions. The technological development that started 26 million years ago has allowed us to progressively overcome Natural Selection and to set technical selection as the main mechanism of our cultural and biological development. This course has been structured into four areas with two conferences each: the animal and ethological part, the human social reality, its symbolic dimension, and the aspects of economical organization. All human reality, including the construction of cities, is based in these traits so specifically human.
