ANTH 3 - (BH) Culture, Tradition and Transformation

Semester Hours: 3

Fall, Spring
Anthropology has provided many critical revisions of the concept of culture and has thus shaped our modern world view. Is culture synonymous with tradition? How did people’s capacity for culture evolve? How do cultures transform themselves? What is the difference between the humanistic and scientific approaches to understanding culture change? How can we use the study of other cultures to understand our own?


Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
