Anthr pology "Anthropology is the study of human diversity" Anthropology comes from the Greek anthropos (“human”) and logia (“study”), it is the study of humankind, from its beginnings millions of years ago to the present day. It seeks understand the whole panorama of human existence. To understand the full sweep and complexity of cultures across all of human history, anthropology draws and builds upon knowledge from the social and biological sciences as well as the humanities and physical sciences.

How is it different from sociology and other social sciences? Concerned with social patterns and practices across cultures, with a special interest in finding the similarities and differences on how people live in particular places and how they organize, govern, and create meaning. Topics of concern to sociocultural anthropologists include such areas as health, work, ecology and environment, education, agriculture and development, and social change. How humans adapt to diverse environments, how biological and cultural processes work together to shape growth, development and behavior, and what causes disease and early death. In addition, they are interested in human biological origins, evolution and variation. Studies past peoples and cultures, from the deepest prehistory to the recent past, through the analysis of material remains, ranging from artifacts and evidence of past environments to architecture and landscapes. Pottery, stone tools, animal bone, and remains of structures are examples of material evidences concerned with understanding power, inequality, transmission of cultural beliefs and ideologies, and social change, particularly as these are constructed and represented through language and discourse.
