What is the history of anthropology?
Apparently the German thinkers Kant and Herder had a lot to do with the creation of modern anthropology. Look for the recent book on this subject by John Zammito, "Kant, Herder, and the Birth of Anthropology."
AnswerHaha, this is a long answer, for the easiest way of understanding the history of anthropology look up at a college for the class Anthropological Theory. It should detail all the theoretical minds that started Anthropology. From Plato and Socrates to Spencer and Tylor, then Marx and Engels, to many more the history of anthropology started when scientific thought started. Anthropology is just the study of primates and human culture. Closely like Psychology where you can say its the study of human behavior.
Anthropology is a social science and by definition, studies the origins and social relationships between human beings. They ask questions such as, What defines us humans? How do we behave? Anthropology has four subfields which include, cultural anthropology, archaeology, linguistic anthropology and lastly biological anthropology. History is a branch of a liberal arts degree which studies every aspect of history as a whole and is a career which is much broader than anthropology in general…
Anthropology originated in the colonial encounter between western people and colonized non- western people.Anthropology over laps with the humanities , The natural sciences and the social sciences.The term Anthropology is Greek.In the late 19th century was distinguished from other social sciences.Bio cultural Anthropology is the scientific exploration of the relationship between human biology and culture.
The scope of anthropology is much broader because it studied the human being physically and biologically. As it study the human beings so it concern with all natural sciences and social sciences like economics, political science, social relations etc. So study of anthropology is very important to know about history and past culture. we can compare one culture with the culture of other society through anthropology. we can know about knew things through anthropology.
