Anthropology, the comparative study of humanity and culture, seeks to explain both diversity and similarity in human behavior around the world.  It is an academic discipline that integrates a number of specialized fields, including physical anthropology, archaeology, social and cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and applied studies of human problems.
