Human Origins : Contributions from Social Anthropology Paperback / softback
Part of the Methodology & History in Anthropology series
Human Origins brings together new thinking by social anthropologists and other scholars on the evolution of human culture and society.
No other discipline has more relevant expertise to consider the emergence of humans as the symbolic species.
Yet, social anthropologists have been conspicuously absent from debates about the origins of modern humans.
These contributions explore why that is, and how social anthropology can shed light on early kinship and economic relations, gender politics, ritual, cosmology, ethnobiology, medicine, and the evolution of language.
