Lecture 1 Introductory Remarks
  • Social and Cultural Anthropology
  • The study of human conduct and thought in their
    social and cultural contexts
  • Knowledge about humans in societies
  • Knowledge about those aspects of humanity which
    are not natural, but which are related to that
    which is acquired (i.e. skills, beliefs, forms
    of behaviour maybe even emotions)

8
Social Anthropology is the study of
  • Social and cultural variation (patterns of
    interaction as well as production and use of
    knowledge)
  • Societies as wholes

9
Distinctive methodological features
  • Participant observation (immersion in the
    exotic setting, acquisition of verbal and
    non-verbal skills). Focus on face-to-face
    interaction
  • Fieldwork, long-term empirical research
  • Ethnographic studies, which can be used to
    support general theories about social life and
    human behaviour
