Underpinning all the anthropological works is the concern of mapping human variation (biological, behavioural and cultural) and to explain, interpret and understand the directions in the development of human behaviour. The main topics of investigation are primitive societies, cultural relativism, unity of human species, human diversity and human evolution. Social psychology can make good use of the theories about cultures and societies which might assist in the explanation of the individual behaviour in a particular society. Anthropology can give a clear picture of the cultural and social context to a social psychologist. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp admin Added an answer on October 14, 2020 at 9:27 am This answer was edited. The sciences that can influence social psychology are sociology and anthropology (Bonner, 1953). Anthropology is the study of social behavior in a specific cultural superstructure. Instead of focusing on the behavior, anthropology focuses more on the culture. Meanwhile, individual behavior in that culture can be explained by psychology which understands that individual behavior cannot be separated from the culture or social stimuli around him.
