Anthropology (from Greek: ἄνθρωπος, anthropos , "human being"; and λόγος, logos , "speech" lit. to talk about human beings) is the study of humanity . Anthropology has origins in the natural sciences , the humanities , and the social sciences The term was first used by Fran§ois P©ron when discussing his encounters with Tasmanian Aborigines Ethnography is both one of its primary methods and the text that is written as a result of the practice of anthropology and its elements. Since the work of Franz Boas and Bronisław Malinowski in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, social anthropology has been distinguished from other social science disciplines by its emphasis on in-depth examination of context, cross-cultural comparisons (socio-cultural anthropology is by nature a comparative discipline), and the importance it places on long-term, experiential immersion in the area of research, often known as participant-observation . Cultural anthropology in particular has emphasized cultural relativity and the use of findings to frame cultural critiques. This has been particularly prominent in the United States, from Boas's arguments against 19th-century racial ideology, through

The majority of the human genome evolved about 500 million years ago
but they still share the major components such as the humerus, radius, and ulna. These illustrations are ultimately meant to document that a lot of homology exists in the basic vertebrae body plan and establish the fact that all vertebrates share a common evolutionary ancestor. Based off of papers such as this 2006 Science publication SHH , named after a favorite video game of the researcher who discovered the gene. When there are mutations in SHH , limbs do not develop normally, as illustrated in the collection of skeletons from the various mutant stocks to the right. The forelimbs of the top represent normal development with the presence of SHH . In the absence of SHH signaling, forelimbs are mutated as seen in the bottom. Comparing the SHH sequence between organisms have shown that it is a highly conserved gene, found with little difference in species as diverse as arthropods and mammals. In 2006 we also saw another paper that figured out the molecular evolution of SHH is relatively accelerated in primates, when compared to other mammals. And

Anthropology studies humankind from a comparative perspective that emphasizes the diversity of human behavior and the importance of culture in explaining that diversity. While the discipline encompasses the biological nature of our species and the material aspects of human adaptation, it takes as fundamental the idea that we respond to nature and natural forces in large part through culture. Anthropology, then, is the study of human beings as cultural animals. Sociocultural anthropology draws its data from the direct study of contemporary peoples living in a wide variety of circumstances, from peasant villagers and tropical forest hunters and gatherers to urban populations in modern societies, as well as from the history and prehistory of those peoples.

    UCLA Department of Anthropology
    Anthropology, the broadest of the social sciences, is the study of humankind. One of the strengths of anthropology as a discipline is its "holistic" or integrative approach; it links the life sciences and the humanities and has strong ties with disciplines ranging from biology and psychology to linguistics, political science, and the fine arts. Anthropological study is appropriate for people with a wide variety of interests: human cultures and civilizations both present and past, human and animal behavior, particular regions of the world such as Africa, Asia, Latin America, Oceania, etc. Established in 1941, the department grew to prominence immediately after World War II and has consistently ranked among the top ten departments in the country, both for the distinction of its faculty and the quality of its teaching. Many faculty members actively engage in research and teaching in two or more fields, and many hold joint appointments in other departments and schools at UCLA. UCLA Department of Anthropology
