Abstract

Viewing human being, as a part of evolution process is still a controversial issue for some people, in fact the evolution runs. As a sociocultural entity, human being has distinctive characters in its evolution process. A Theory inherited from Darwin may have only been able to answer how a simple unit such genes evolve to such complex animal like human. Yet, how among those complex animals interact, communicate, and replicate idea in so forth formed a such self-organized sociocultural complexity, may only be, at the moment, answered by what Dawkins says as memetic evolution with meme as the replicator which, in near future, hoped to be a very potential tool for analyzing social phenomena.
