Anthropology asks the ultimate question for human beings: what does it mean to be human? Because of this, anthropology is the science that must understand both the physical and the metaphysical dimensions of human existence: how we both create and relate to our environment. The subject commences with an examination of the foundational issues for anthropologists including the nature of human culture, the nature of humans as an evolved species, and the critical importance of human rationality and belief. Examples of human societies and cultures are drawn from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas, Australia and the Pacific.
