Anthropology is one of the broadest disciplines. It studies the human being in his various aspects such as cultural, linguistic, social, religious, political, economic. Anthropology allows looking at the society not from the position of a researcher butfrom the position of a member of that society. Therefore, the main method of anthropology is participant observation, or the study of the community in the natural setting. That is why, anthropologists have to travel a lot and are fluent in foreign languages. At the same time, anthropology is not limited to the study of traditional societies. It studies the issues and problems of modern societies too such as migration, urbanization, ethnic conflicts, poverty, religious extremism.
