This is a course of study based on the American Anthropological Society's Anthropology Curriculum Study Project comprised of Unit 1, "Studying Societies," and Unit 2, "Origins of Humanness." The following topics are outlined: 1) examination of life in a small society by studying a contemporary hunter-gatherer group, the Bushmen of the Kalahari; 2) description of the significance of status and role as it operates in a human society; 3) analysis of life in a small society by means of detailed examination of the Mbuti; 4) inference about the earliest human ways of life from fossil and cultural evidence; 5) relation of "Nature and Nurture" to the potentiality for change; 6) inference about technological and cultural development during the Pleistocene period from examination of selected artifacts; and 7) hypothesis on the technological and biological systems in the evolutionary process. This brief course outline also contains a course description and goals section. (Author/JH)
