Anthropology

Anthropology is a science of man and his works. Sociology and anthropology are "twin sisters". Both are mutually helpful and supportive. Anthropology has two main branches: (i) Physical anthropology and (ii) cultural anthropology. Physical anthropology deals with human evolution and studies the physical characteristics of man. Cultural anthropology deals with the cultural evolution. It studies the ways of life of different communities, particularly, the primitive ones.
Anthropology differs from sociology in that it usually focuses on the simple, small-scale, primitive societies. Anthropology studies the society as "whole". Sociology concentrates more on group processes within larger modern complex societies.

Do you not consider Linguistic Anthropology a major branch, or do you associate Linguistics within Cultural Anthropology?

Yes, I associate Linguistic Anthropology into Cultural Antropology. Here I wanted only to make brief introductions on Social sciences whcich have connections with sociology. So dear I do not go for deeper interpretations on them. Here my major is sociology.
