For Intro-to-Anthropology 2021 we used Anthropology: What does it mean to be human? to discuss the idea of “meaning-dependent organisms.” We read chapter 10, “How do we make meaning?”
As Lavenda and Schultz put it, “We are meaning-making, meaning-using, meaning-dependent organisms” (2021, 339).
This material was for Intro to Anthropology 2021. The previous class was on Language. After that we discussed Economies.
