It first appears sporadically in the scholarly Latin anthropologia of Renaissance France, where it spawns the French word anthropologie, transferred into English as anthropology.

He did find an anthropologos from Aristotle in the standard ancient Greek Lexiconwhich he says defines the word as "speaking or treating of man".

The science of history[ edit ] Marvin Harrisa historian of anthropology, begins The Rise of Anthropological Theory with the statement that anthropology is "the science of history". He is using "history" in a special sense, as the founders of cultural anthropology used it: It includes both documented history and prehistory, but its slant is toward institutional development rather than particular non-repeatable historical events.

The Struggle for a Science of Culture. Elsewhere he refers to "my theories of historical determinism", defining the latter: Different philosophers, however, use determinism in different senses. The deterministic element that Harris sees is lack of human social engineering: When they act in society, they do so according to the laws of history, of which they are not aware; hence, there is no historical element of free will.Anthropology is a discipline very conscious of its history.
