Question:

What is the difference between Sociology and Anthropology ?

Inactive
Shannon T.
Answer:

On first glance, the two fields might appear to be one in the same. Both have humans as their main point of study, both look at culture as a way to define our interactions with the world. But to the trained eye there are key differences. Where Anthropology looks at what it means to be human, sociology looks at the question of what society is and how it not only shaped by but reflects human behavior. It looks at how events on the macro level effect the individual on the micro level, and places a greater emphasis on the use of statistical data.

Answer:

This is an easy question to ask but a hard one to answer, mainly because the word gender is loaded with various levels of meaning. One possible definition is that gender is that is the assignment of being male or female based mainly on societal roles and cultural concepts than on a persons actual biological sex.

Subject: Anthropology

Question:

If Anthropology is the study of humans, then what is special about humans that warrants such a specific field of study?

Inactive

Answer:

There are many things which make the human species special, such as the capability for abstract thought, varied speech patterns, numerous types of social systems, and diverse types of subsistence. In the end all these things can be channeled into one specific concept. Culture. It is though culture that we are able to study human beings in all places, though out all of time.
