Some people say the claim that such biological structures underlie even the most sophisticated, most institutionalized and most conventional structures in our own societies is socially naive biologismo I think such an accusation derives mainly from the fact that it is these people who are socio-biologically naive. If one would investigate, one would soon find that conventions and all those additional institutions have a basis for existence simply because they are founded on such very old evolution-determined behavior structures.

If an individual becomes home-conscious, if it attaches itself to one place or district, the fact of individual distance will result in an area, a fixed area, a geographically definable area, instead of a moveable halo around the animal; and this is called territory. Then, of course, evolution and natural selection get hold of this phenomenon and put it to a great number of various uses in different species. If we look at territories as they occur in practice in different species, it is hard to find a common denominator of the phenomena as they are now.
