Anthropology is a holistic study of the human species, past and present. Anthropological inquiry ranges from the scientific (from genomics to pollen analysis) to the humanistic (from poetry to human rights). This is because people are neither simply biological organisms, nor are they purely social/cultural beings, obliging anthropologists to take an eclectic approach to study humans.
