Modelling of the Natural Evolutionary Computation in the Human Society

Igor Weisband

Abstract

Under consideration is the theoretical model of social evolution proposed in 1851 by Herbert Spencer with a slightly modified interpretation of basic evolutionary concepts: adaptation, heredity, variation and selection. Some of the new concepts belong to informatics: the model (as the most important factor in adaptation and as the core of clans and elites gathering), marshaling and unmarshaling (heredity). Others were taken from sociology: ideologies, the revolutionary process (variation and selection). The paper presents an approach to computer simulation of these processes. It may seem that in the article too much sociology, but it is necessary in order to make the model most adequate. In addition, it is easier to explain the sociological aspects to computer scientists than aspects of informatics - to sociologists.
