Biological Knowledge

biological knowledge, human society.

This essay will focus on Darwin’s Tea Party (DTP) by Gabriel Tordjman.

When we talk about biological knowledge we mean knowledge of the living world. I’m going to give a few examples of biological knowledge in this paper. First off, I’ll talk about the importance of biological knowledge for survival in the Paleolithic era. Then, about the importance of biological knowledge for survival in the Neolithic era. And finally, about the role biological knowledge played in changing human society in the Neolithic era.

First of all, let’s talk about how back in the days, in the Paleolithic era, people would survive and what they’d need to do to stay alive. “Native Indian knowledge of the medicinal properties of plants and animals, for example, is in fact what helped save the lives of some of the earliest European colonists to the ‘New World’” (DTP 14). This means that Native Indians knew a lot about plants and animals which helped them with medicine purposes. This knowledge was acquired by trial and error.

Next, let’s now talk about what people did in the Neolithic era to keep themselves alive. People needed to nourish themselves. And as we also know, hunting and scavenging of animals was pretty famous back then, for just about thousands, possibly even hundreds of thousands of years. Until came finally “the Agriculture Revolution”. “Agriculture involved the application of very detailed knowledge of edible plants and food crops…” (DTP 16). People started growing their food in the land instead of hunting for it.

Third of all, let’s talk about the role that agriculture played in the change of human society in the Neolithic era. What happened here is the nomadic people gave up on their nomadic habits and wanted a more settled (livelihood/way of life). Which then lead to the creation of villages, and these villages grew into larger towns and from then on grew into undying cities (DTP 16).

To conclude, from both of these two eras, Paleolithic and Neolithic, we’ll find much importance that biological knowledge served to the survival or the citizens as well as the role it had in the change of human society.
