Anthropology

 

Anthropology is the study of human culture. In order to properly understand any culture one must have a firm understanding of the pre-historical and historical development of that culture.

Cultures are shaped by the physical environment in which they reside so a primary focus of cultural development includes an understanding of physical processes and its effects on the human condition. In this respect, Anthropology is a broad social science discipline which links physical and human perspectives.

Anthropology addresses such topics as:

  • human genetics
  • origin and evolution of the human species
  • rise and fall of civilizations
  • development of languages
  • development and spread of religions
  • diversity of cultures
