Since anthropology is all about studying the society and human being’s overall behavior – both in the past and present time – I am expecting to improve on my cultural relativism, thus appreciate other people’s cultural practices and values. I shall be applying ethnography in recording and analyzing a society’s cultural aspects, which is achievable by making observations from an ethnocentric perspective. This helps me in defining a society’s unique ethnicity and identity.
Through anthropology, it is easier to appreciate the world’s diversity in terms of cultural and ethnic differences. The world consists of incredible diversified groups of people, most of which have their own beliefs and values towards dissimilar cultural nuances. Therefore, anthropology helps to discover the world’s cultural differences whereby, as a researcher, I can help in keeping records of any meaningful and worthy historical aspects.
By studying people’s social customs, cultural and even biological developments, anthropology makes it simpler to interpret people’s beliefs and behaviors in relations to their surrounding environments. As an anthropologist researcher, this study helps me in making conclusions concerning a society’s trade practices, religious inclinations, and unique social traditions. Such observations are derivable from discovered objects and any other useful paraphernalia. Better yet, I will be making good use of material culture as a way of determining a society’s characteristics in comparison to its historical predispositions and present statuses.
Material culture aids in relating material objects to a specified community, society or culture. Similarly, through bound theory as an anthropological aspect, I can identify diseases affecting a particular community, thus eases analysis methodology. In essence, without anthropology, it is impracticable to understand and appreciate the diverse cultures existing in this world.
