The main contents of the course follow the evolution of anthropological thought in stages, starting from the second half of the 19th century to today. In particular, it will focus on the following schools:
- Evolutionist anthropology of the 19th century and the American school;
- French anthropology and the study of "primitive societies";
- French ethno-sociology;
- The development of American cultural anthropology;
- Malinowski and the origins of the ethnographic method;
- British structural-functionalism;
- The structural anthropology of Lévi-Strauss;
- Interactionist theories;
- Marxist anthropology;
- The interpretative turn in anthropology;
- Main contemporary debates and issues.

The exploration of the themes above will introduce the students to:
- the main acquisitions of anthropology regarding human worldviews and creativity: from myth to ritual, from religion to the cognitive dimension of human experience;
- the anthropological perspective on the social dimensions of human life such as family, power, politics, economics, and forms of human organization;
- the contribution of the discipline to the study of human life in today's complex society.

Teaching methods:
The course is based on frontal lessons generally supported by multimedia content (slides, videos, and photos) and the exploration of ethnographic cases.

Note: In the cases provided by the law and/or of particular measures adopted by the University, the teaching activities might be conducted from remote.

Main texts for the final exam:
1. Ugo Fabietti, 2020, Storia dell'antropologia, 4th edition, Zanichelli, Bologna. Study only chapters 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20 (until page 221).
