Abstract
Mutual relation of natural selection and sociogenesis in evolution of human society has been studied and compared with that of lower grades of sociogenesis. Whereas the intensity of natural selection decreases with the deepening of the social way of life, all changes in the direction of sociogenesis continue to belong among the most important ones. The increase of intraspecific fighting in the course of anthropogenesis has been conditioned by the decreased pressure of natural selection and, at the same time, by the not yet sufficiant strength of the human reason. All human history shows, however, that larger and larger groups of people can unite and live in peace and cooperate in favour of all of them. It is assumed that all intraspecific fighting in the human society will disappear as completely as it did in the evolution of social insects, or, as it did in all antagonistic relations among cells in multicellular organisms.
