Book Description

It may seem apparent that the human being has always been present in anthropology. This ebook; however; discloses that he has never really been a part of it.

Theoretical Anthropology or How to Observe a Human Being (PDF) establishes the foundations and conditions; both theoretical and methodological; which make it feasible to consider the human being as a topic of observation and analysis; for himself as an entity; and not from the viewpoint of understanding social and cultural phenomena.

In a debate with both anthropologists and philosophers; this ebook describes and evaluates the human being as a “volume”. To this end; a specific lexicon is created around the notions of volume; volumography and volumology. These notions are further shown and enriched by several drawings.

NOTE: The product includes the ebook; Theoretical Anthropology or How to Observe a Human Being in PDF. No access codes are included.
