Description The Encyclopaedia of Anthropology respects the fact that modern anthropology is an interdisciplinary, comparative and holistic field of science seeking answers to fundamental questions relating to humankind: “Where do we come from? What are we like? Where are we heading?” This is based on the knowledge that people and human societies, their origins, developments and transformations are determined by the interrelationship of given facts in areas such as biology, medicine, psychology, society and culture. What is specific to The Encyclopaedia of Anthropology is its original concept, going beyond all other similar works which have been published on this topic anywhere in the world so far. Structurally, it has been designed as an integrated database of knowledge acquired in the fields of human, social and cultural sciences in the context of the development of anthropology and its sub-disciplines, research methods, paradigms and theories. The encyclopaedia is meant for students and researchers in the area of anthropology and related disciplines (area studies, archaeology, astronomy, bioculturology, biology, computer science, economics, ethnology, philosophy, folklore studies, genetics, geology, history, kinanthropology, cultural studies, linguistics, mathematics, media studies, medicine, palaeontology, political science, law, psychology, religious studies, sexology, sociology and theology) as well as for teachers and students of secondary schools and universities and for the general public.
