What is Anthropology? - Anthropology & Anthropologists | Anthropology Report: "Anthropology: What Does it Means to be Human?
Anthropology is itself a search for what it means to be human, a documentation of human life and possibility. Anthropology is the study of humanity and its origins: “a scholarly discipline that aims to describe in the broadest possible sense what it means to be human” (Lavenda and Schultz, Anthropology, 2012:5; this is my preferred anthropology textbook for a four-field Introduction to Anthropology). Anthropologists ask the big questions about human life–and are famous for interrogating the basis for these questions, constantly examining not just the research questions but whether we are asking the correct questions."
