ANTH 250 (US) Controversies and Issues in Cultural Anthropology (1)

This course offers an introduction to cultural anthropology through an examination of major questions which concern anthropologists, such as: Is human behavior inherited or learned? Why is there war? What are the reasons for social inequality? Through a problem-solving method of learning, students will have the opportunity to debate and discuss the often conflicting approaches of leading anthropologists to these issues.
