Person. Socio-biological “cell” of society

Considering a person and his or her communities of a different order through the concept of a socio-biological organism can be useful. So you can better understand the laws that govern the social behavior of a person.

When we focus on the exclusively social side, then in the search for the fundamental principles of social development we end up with metaphysical concepts, such as Hegel’s absolute spirit or the perfect man Nietzsche. By the important social aspects of our spirituality, we can suppress, or even worse, replace the biological foundations of our life.

Perceiving ourselves as a special form of life, we contrast the whole other world as an object and an alienated world.

If we elevate the biological aspect, then we risk falling into Darwinism, we risk withdrawing our social behavior from the biological one, that is, from the unconscious. Biologization of social behavior reduces the standards of morality, leads to the desocialization of individuals and societies.

It is more reasonable in the academic sense, in the theological sense, and in the ordinary sense to realize your objectively given socio-biological nature. The socio-biological aspect does not consider man as a “pure” social creation that has needs and goals — psychological, economic, cultural, political, etc. The socio-biological aspect allows us considering man as part of nature, which is generally harmonious and follows the immanent laws of life activity. At the same time, we are equally aware of our particularity and our commonality with the world around us. So we can avoid extreme speculations, deceptions and distortions in setting the rules of our public life.
