Week One: Lecture Notes Keywords (Chpt 1): Anthropology (and four subfields) Species Culture Holistic Cultural relativity Keywords (Chpt 2): Scientific theory vs. belief system (as two modes of investigating) Scientific method Hypothesis Induction vs. deduction Indigenous ethnography Lecture: Way back when I began thinking about college and what career options I was interested in, I had a hard time picking a major. I was interested in biology, but wasn’t interested in being in the medical field; I was also interested in history, but didn’t see myself wanting to teach history or become a historian; I knew I wanted to help people and travel, but I wasn’t sure how to fit my broad interests into a major much less a career. I enrolled in a few elective courses in anthropology, without knowing anything about the subject, and realized that in many ways, an anthropologist is a jack of all trades. Basically, we study humanness. Anthropology examines human culture, biology, language, and history across time and space. Humans from anywhere and from anytime are fair game. I realized that I could explore history, culture, and biology and do some traveling, and the rest is history!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
