Book Description Icon Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Piero (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book. Anthropology originated as the study of primitive cultures. But the notion of primitive exposes presumptions of civilized superiority and the right of the West to speak for less evolved others. With the fall of Empire, anthropology became suspect and was torn by dissension from within. Did anthropology serve as a handmaiden to colonialism ? Is it a science created by racism to prove racism? Can it aid communication between cultures, or does it reinforce our differences? Introducing Anthropology is a fascinating account of an uncertain human science seeking to transcend its unsavoury history. It traces the evolution of anthropology from its genesis in Ancient Greece to its varied forms in contemporary times. Anthropology s key concepts and methods are explained, and we are presented with such big-name anthropologists as Franz Boas, Bronislaw Malinowski, E.E. Evans-Pritchard, Margaret Mead and Claude Levi-Strauss. The new varieties of self-critical and postmodern anthropologies are examined, and the leading question - of the impact of anthropology on non-Western cultures - is given centre-stage. Introducing Anthropology is lucid in its arguments, its good humour supported by apt and witty illustrations. This book offers a highly accessible invitation into anthropology.
