There is philosophy in anthropology, but it seldom involves the writers normally associated with the canon of academic philosophy. So am self-taught on that aspect.
My organizing question is "why do people do what they do?" This leads to epistemology and ontology issues as related to my cosmological model. Key writers: German Idealists, continental philosophers, Frankfort School, structuralism, post-modernism.
Retired, MA in Social Anthropology, describe my current interest as philosophical anthropology (why do humans do what they do), belong to 5 other philosophy meet-ups in Balt-Wash area (moderator of Socrates Cafe in Crofton), room for one more.
