In the history of humanity, from what can be considered today as the first civilization in the chronology of great civilizations: the Sumerian civilization followed by ancient Egypt, the Aegean world, the awakening of the Asia (China and India) until contemporary times, the definition of man changes according to the schools, the doctrines, the eras and even the currents of thought which are born, grow and unfold in time. The human phenomenon becomes difficult and even impossible to define. At the end of all these scholarly exercises, one question remains: What is Man? Man, on the definitional plane, from the creation to the present day, has he remained the same? If it is true that we can not talk about the human sciences without talking about the social sciences, then an answer to this question will help us to try to understand our current societies.
