    There is physical and cultural anthropology.  I love them both but I only studied the latter as a post graduate. It was most fascinating and it convinced me that culture essentially is a resistant complex of beliefs and rituals, having an internal logic that can easily...

    Never Heard of It Till College

    I was a fan of archeology as a child (thank you Indian Jones) but took my first anthropology class in college and loved it.  It really opened up my thinking in regards to other cultures and social phenomena.

    Culture

    I love culture and tradition, my own and those of others. I am a sociocultural anthro major and a European history minor. People have interesting view points, a lot of which are manipulated by the way we are raised, which has a lot to do with culture. It's important to learn...

    How mankind has developed from his early

    People Are Weird

    I studied anthro at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX.  It was called Southwest Texas State back when I went there (graduated in 1999).  I really wasn't sure what I wanted to study when I was in college.  I started out as a business major at Texas A&M...

    So Much to Learn

    There is so much to learn, both about the people who came before us, and the people who share the world with us. I think, human nature is showcased at it's best and at it's worst when you can see how differently people act along with the hows and whys behind those actions. I...
