What is culture? How should one study it? Is a science of culture possible? And what is science anyway? Many thinkers have been attempting to answer these questions. This book covers the answers provided by anthropologists ranging from classical evolutionists to postmodernists.
Students of Anthropological Thought can also refer to my Sociological Thought for certain issues not covered in this book.
For more insight, they can read
(1) Karl Marx for materialism
(2) Emile Durkheim for evolutionism and functionalism
(3) Max Weber for methodology.
I covered postmodernism extensively in Sociological Thought which includes the philosophers who inspired postmodernism as well as recent thinkers who are called postmodernists. Students can read
(4) Immanuel Kant,
Jean Francois Lyotard,
Jean Baudrillard and Michel Foucault.
