Social Anthropology

Why study social anthropology?


People everywhere in the world live in and create cultures and societies. The science that studies them is called social and cultural anthropology. Anthropology is an ideal discipline for expanding our knowledge about we humans, and for gaining practical skills in preventing conflict between people from different social and cultural backgrounds.

People from different cultures realize themselves in different ways, providing differently the necessities of life, solving problems, enjoying or praying. Anthropology studies particular ways of life, ethnic and racial stereotypes and prejudices that attribute particular traits (laziness, warm-heartedness, effusiveness, etc.) to entire ethnic or religious groups. In practical terms, he can, for example, understand and explain why some Slovaks do not like Roma, why Central Europeans are so afraid of refugees, and how dangerous it is for politicians to spread hatred. But it also makes it possible, for example, to understand such things as taste or shopping behaviour.
