Anthropology, Other Subject

Anthropology-The word anthropology itself tells the basic story. From the Greek anthropos ("human") and logia ("study"), it is the study of humankind, from its beginnings millions of years ago to the present day. Anthropology is the study of humanity. Anthropology's main concerns are the ancestors of the modern human. American anthropology is divided into four fields: cultural anthropology, archaeology, linguistic anthropology and biological anthropology. The purpose of anthropology is to better understand the modern person through education of the past.

In a sense, we all "do" anthropology because it is rooted in a universal human trait: curiosity. We are curious about ourselves and about other people, the living as well as the dead, here and around the globe. We ask anthropological questions:

  • Do all societies have marriage customs?
  • As a species, are human beings innately violent or peaceful?
  • Did the earliest humans have light or dark skins?
  • When did people first begin speaking a language?
  • How related are humans, monkeys and chimpanzees?
  • Is Homo sapiens's brain still evolving?
