A Way of Life

Many people use this manifestation as a way to talk about their survival and how they examine their everyday life. What they fail to distinguish, however, is the fact that their way of living is allied in a much broader type than they think. Anthropologists study these categories large, narrow, present, and past to try and find out what accurately a "way of life" was for individual cultures.

By studying these cultures Anthropologists try and realize different methods of survival. They have also exposed a few major social institutions that all cultures have a common link together. These social institution are the root for which culture is founded. In order for a culture to become distinct from other cultures it has to pertain different rules and change around these institutions. Anthropologists use these social institutional changes to appreciate the development of a culture and their way of being. They research these processes through fieldwork regularly. By using fieldwork as a means of research they can directly examine, interview, survey, and then analyze the situation. This gives them to lead of seeing with their own eyes what take place within a culture.
