  • Cultural / Social Anthropology
  • Linguistics
2.

culture: as a primary concept

  • shared
  • transmitted from generation to generation

  • integrated
3. comparative methods: as major approaches to the study of human behavior development and structure
4.

holism: or the study of "humankind" as a whole, as a primary goal of anthropology
