This course introduces students to concepts, theories, examples and case studies, all of which help us to understand how Culture operates and allows humans to acquire and pass on knowledge and to make sense of the world. Culture, and the order embedded within it, allows us to exist and interact in our worlds. It is Culture which makes human life, as we know it, possible. Particular attention is given to the ordering of relationships of people within groups and the organisation of groups within society. This course is based predominantly on cultural anthropology, but makes some reference to the disciplines of sociology and psychology.
