This paper takes a look at the developmental changes that have occurred among homo sapiens in the last two millennia and how these changes have influenced human behavior. In order to understand these behavioral changes, this paper reviews the nature of human behavior and the occurrences leading up to, and influencing the change in human behavior.

From the Paper:

"Human behavior is more complex and varied than behavior exhibited by other organisms, however the basic processes share between humans and non-humans is not much different (Barnes-Holmes, et. al, 2003). Darwin suggests that no fundamental difference exists between man's behavior and other higher mammals with respect to certain mental abilities, suggesting that a continuity of sorts exist between the two and hence comparisons can be made between humans and non-humans with respect to behavior.
Others including Skinner shy away from non human studies believing but do suggest that such studies are useful for "assessing what behaviors and traits are distinctly human vs. those that are not" (Skinner, 1969: 101). For purposes of this evolution primarily human behaviors and traits will be explored in relation to developmental patterns over time. Human behavior will be examined as a direct correlate to developmental changes that have occurred in human beings since the dawn of time. "
