Anthropology is the broad study of humankind around the world and throughout time.  It is concerned with both the biological and the cultural aspects of humans. It studies tools, techniques, traditions, language, beliefs, kinships, values, social institutions, economic mechanisms, art and literature, politics, biological evolution, human adaptability, and primatology. It describes the impact of humans on other humans.
