Description : Anthropology is basically referred to as the study of humankind. This book interlinks polyphony and anthropology: a combination that increases the researcher's scope of views, the narrative existence of subjectivities, and the style of description. A complex account of psycho-cultural and biophysical case studies has been presented in this book. Digital culture and communication have been revolutionizing the conventional way of life, forms of knowledge, methods of working and connecting, and styles of writing. A researcher must pay attention to syncretisms, identities and ubiquities in order to understand and change cultural contexts. The book is a valuable source of information for researchers, students, scholars and any other reader interested in studying anthropology. The readers of this book will cross sociological, archaeological, philosophical, psychological, biological, anatomical, psychoanalytical, architectural and more such boundaries during the course of comprehending the diverse scope of anthropology through this book.
