This course is an introduction to the anthropological study of human culture and society. We will examine how different modes of description and explanation in contemporary cultural anthropology are applied to various domains (e.g., How different peoples feed themselves, mate and have children, cooperate and fight with one another, deal with the inevitability of death, etc.). By comparing the ways the human beings cope with the natural environment and each other, we will seek a better understanding of ourselves and what it is to be human.
