About the Project

Project term: April, 2012–March, 2015

This joint research project aims to take a view of human society over a long term from an evolutionary historical perspective. Hence, using the three academic disciplines of primatology, ecological and social / cultural anthropologies―as a base, this joint research project comprises the work of experts in fields such as social philosophy and ethics. The first phase of this long-term joint research project focused on the theme of ‘groups’, which was conducted between 2005 and 2008. The second phase, undertaken between 2009 and 2011, focused on the theme of ‘institutions’. This pattern of changing themes continues as the research progresses, and the theme established for the third phase is ‘others’. The results of the first and second research phases show that human beings establish a wide variety of groups, and that they live in complex and multifarious societies equipped with a wide variety of institutions. This joint research project offers an inverse perspective on the evolution of human society and its sociality, thus far, by examining the nature of the existence of ‘others’ and how they appear, relate and confront one another.
