Cody Mylander Moon Group The Minangkabau September 17, 2010 Reaction Paper #2 According to Lavenda, anthropology is “the study of human beings.” The human beings that Peters-Golden studies, in Chapter 8 of her book, are “The Minangkabau.” Anthropologists strive to learn about “human nature, human society, and the human past” through their studies, states Lavenda. Lavenda discusses the several subfields of anthropology. Biological anthropology looks at humans as biological organisms, and compares then to other living things. Cultural anthropology focuses on different cultures, hence the name, “cultural anthropology”. Cultural anthropologists study anything and everything that shapes a culture, whether it is art, music, religion, or anything else. Another subfield of anthropology is called linguistic anthropology. Linguistic anthropology is a much smaller subfield than cultural anthropology, as it focuses only on language within different cultures. Archaeology, the fourth subfield, is the study of human past.

What students are saying

    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.
