    Scientific racism employs anthropology (notably physical anthropology), anthropometry, craniometry, and other disciplines or pseudo-disciplines, in proposing anthropological typologies supporting the classification of human populations into physically discrete human races, that might be asserted to be superior or inferior.   Angela Saini’s new book makes a compelling argument about how even scientists with good intentions end up perpetuating misleading ideas about race. By Author: Tim Requarth.

    Anthropology is more holistic than other social science disciplines because of the use of comparativism. As a result, anthropology uses a four-field approach to encompass physical anthropology, archaeology, linguistics, and cultural anthropology to examine the full breadth of what it means to be human across all space and time. T or F. Cambridge Core - Biological Anthropology and Primatology - Evaluating Evidence in Biological Anthropology - edited by Cathy Willermet.
