About the Discipline

The principle goals of cultural anthropology are to explore and explain human diversity: just what is the range of differences among human societies, and how do we account for the differences that exist between tribal peoples and Western society? The principle goals of physical anthropology are to study human evolution both from a structural and behavioral perspective.
