Human science does not necessarily dissociate biological and specific human characteristics. Several theoretical systems vere reviewed: the phenomena of consciousness examined by phenomenologist Merleau-Ponty; the social determinants of human consciousness examined by the Marxist neuropsychologist Luria; the development of intellingence examined by cognitive epistemologist Piaget. These authors did not discard the biological determinants of the consciousness and considered that access to higher order phenomena is possible only involving the biological components of the organism.
