What is the importance of anthropology?

If one believes in the bible in so far as it has been translated correctly, then there is not real need for anthropology (The social science that studies the origins and social relationships of human beings).

Answers:

Anthropology is the study of humanity. It draws on natural science, the humanities and the social sciences for its areas of study as well as the hard sciences for its methods of examining traces of ancient civilizations.

Anthropologists deal with questions like:

  • What defines us as a species (Homo sapiens)?
  • Who are our ancestors both physically and socially ?
  • What are our physical traits?
  • How do humans behave and what is the role of environment, culture and thought?
  • Why are groups of humans physically different?
  • How has our evolutionary past influenced our society and culture?

Apart from an interest in how many different approaches and lifestyles ancient peoples have experimented with (essentially a cuteness factor), it is commonly accepted that past performance is the best indicator of future performance. By studying how ancient peoples reacted to pressures from food supplies, the environment and climate, levels of population, the impact of ideologies, pollution, disease and so on may provide us with insight into how to modify our present culture to provide better conditions for humans in general.
