Anthropology  Chapter 1: What is Anthropology?  Anthropology studies everything about human being and it´s culture.  It also explores human diversity across space and time, and seeks to understand  human condition.  It´s particular interest: how diversity comes with human adaptability to different  environments and cultures, studying adaptation*, variation and change.  Anthropology is a Comparative and holistic science. Study of Human Species   Holism: study of past, present and future of human kind, it´s biology, nature and  culture.  Compares and examines all societies (ancient and modern), simple and complex,  local and global. –Cross­cultural perspective –  “ Cultures are traditions and customs, transmitted through learning rather than biological  inheritance.” * Adaptation: process in which organisms cope with the environmental forces and  pressures, changing in order to fit the particular environment. Ex: humans adapting to high  altitudes by developing a more efficient respiratory systems through decades, and adapting  a specific diet and clothing. Types of adaptation  1.Genetic: over generations.                            2. Long term: occurs during growth and development.                             3. Short term: occurs spontaneously.  Anthropology is divided in four subfields: o Socio­Cultural: focuses studying culture and human behavior. Explains,  describes and analyses social and cultural similarities and differences, using  two kinds of techniques: Ethnography (gathers data in the field) and  ethnology (interprets the data obtained by the ethnographer). o Archaeology or “public anthropology”: Tries to understand the present of  human kind by studying remains of our ancestors and all kinds of ancient  structures. o Biological: studies human biological diversity (evolution, genetics, growth  and development, biological plasticity and primatology). o Linguistic: focuses on ancient and modern languages in its social and  cultural context. FACT: Every subfield considers variation of time and space, the complex relationship  between biology and culture (bio­cultural perspective). A comparative and cross­cultural  approach is essential. Applied Anthropology Two dimensions: academic and applied.  Applied anthropology is the application of anthropological data, theories,  perspectives, and methods to identify and to solve current social problems. The four subfields can work in several areas, such as family planning, public health,  economic development, businesses, cultural resource management, etc. Some examples of applied anthropology can be medical anthropologists (study  sociocultural and biological context and implications of disease and illness) and  archaeologists, working on educational programs, historic preservation programs, contract  archaeology, etc.
