Supersymmetry is an attempt to unify the two constituents of matter, particles and fields which have always been sharply distinguished, mainly by their statistics (Fermi and Bose correspondingly).So, a symmetry combining them in one multiplet must involve fermionic (anticommuting) generators. This idea brought the concept of superalgebra into physics.
