In the beginning, long before there had arisen a creature which could be considered as human, there existed both society and the environment. The society was a hominid society, derived from a more ancient primate form of social organisation. The environment, although variable, had always existed, and provided those selective pressures which determined the nature of this particular form of animal social organisation. The relationship between society and its environment is the most basic of all the relationships. It is animal. It is primal.
