What is anthropology?
Breaking down the word anthropology, its origins are from the Greek word anthropos "human" and logia "study."
Anthropology itself is the holistic study of humanity. Where other academic disciplines may have taken a narrow stance on an issue anthropology chooses to incorporate anything and everything it is to be human with the ultimate goal of defining who we are, how we came to be and where we are going.
In essence we all practice anthropology every day because of its fundamental ground of curiosity. We are curious about ourselves and curious about others.
