Course contents :  
Via theoretical considerations and anthropological examples, each category of human behaviour is addressed and analysed: from prayer to hunting, music to domesticity. The principal idea consists to bring out universal behaviours, to identify the range of variability according to cultural tradition or phase, and to observe equilibrium systems linking each of these functions via specific and traditional formulas. These modes of equilibrium constitute the key to successive cultures at the same time as their articulation in time expresses a universal dynamic, linking culture, anatomy, nature and history, in which only the archaeological approach can take into account long-term change.
Learning outcomes of the course :  
The course focuses on anthropology as informed by archaeology.
