one meaning of this term refers to the now out-dated notion that societies are organized in terms of how far they have developed in terms of their social and cultural organization. Some social evolutionists believed that all societies had to pass through certain stages over time as they moved from being simple to complex in their culture and organization. In biological terms, however, it refers to the more current notion that human populations and other living creatures have genetically adapted to changing environments by descent through random mutation and processes of natural selection.
