Stages of anthropogenesis. In human evolution (Homo sapiens) there are several stages (including Australopithecus).
– Stage of predecessors (southern monkeys, or Australopithecus). These are extinct species described by numerous finds of fossil remains of the skeleton.
– The stage of archanthropes (the most ancient people are Pithecanthropus and Sinanthropus). These are extinct species of the genus Homo (Man), the existence of which is indicated by the fossil remains of skeletons and primitive tools.
– Stage of paleoanthropes (ancient people – Neanderthals). These are extinct people of the Man kind, from whom fossils of skeletons, tools, cave paintings, fragments of dwellings and parking lots have survived to our time.
– Stage of neoanthropes (new person – Homo sapiens) This stage includes fossil forms (Cro-Magnon) and the living forms of modern man.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
