Explain the theory of ‘Neo-Evolutionism’

It is concerned with long-term culture change and with similar patterns of development that may be seen in unrelated, widely separated cultures. It addresses the long0term changes that are characteristic of human culture in general and the short-term, localized social and ecological adjustments that cause specific cultures to differ from one another as they adapt to their own unique environments. So, neo-evolutionists investigate the ways in which different cultures adapt to similar environments and examine the similarities and differences in the long-term historical trajectories of such groups.

Neo evolutionism is a social theory that tries to explain the evolution of society that introduced by Charles Darwin’s and later developed by Herbert Spencer.

The neo-evolutionists focused on describing the evolution of societies through a number of stages, finding similarities between parallel evolutionary processes, and finding a common formula for the direction of evolution.

According to Steward (1955), he added that, neo evolutionism is also the way in which societies adapted their environment in the some way. This can be through examination of specific resources which a society exploits, the technology used to exploit resources and organization of human labour.

This can be through examination of specific resources which a society exploits, the technology used to exploit resources and organization of human labour. This was argued by White (1900-1975). Further more he argued that, different environments and technology would acquire different kind of adaptations, based on culture. And that culture never change in some inner logic but the society change according to environment.

Gerhard Lenski in neo evolutionism introduced four stages of human progress or development based on culture through advancing history of communication. This are

  1. Information passed through genes. It mean a person inherit genes from parent biologically.
  2. Senteince. This means capacity of feelings, or sense. When a person gained senteince, they can learn and pass information through experience.
  3. human state using signs and develop the logic. Sign interpret information. This can be gesture, posture, facial expression and physical appearances.
  4. Symbols creations. This is based on language and writing.

 

Criticism:

  1. How one society is more developed than other
  2. Focused more energy on studying the course and direction of evolution than it’s fundamental mechanisms i.e. not going into the detail
  3. No one cared to define the criteria that determined the features that were promoted by the cultural selection and which were weeded out
