Human Evolution and Economic Consideration

Scientists and Psychologists have adopted Darwin’s work on evolution as authoritative. While Darwin has adopted physical strength as a touchstone of fittest, Psychologists considered mental elements. No attempt was made to combine both approaches. This led to creation of civilization modeled on economic ideals that converted into economic being.The modern man developed two cruel philosophies of Capitalism and Socialism. These two philosophies together restricted the evolution of man as a cultural being and stripped him from kind human feelings. Scientists are enslaving natural forces for their countries to be used against other countries. The slavish scientist is leading man to devastation at the hands of his own products. This raised questions concerning role of different players that are guiding human history. The relationship between universe, life and man has not been studied collectively.
