It may seem apparent that the human being has always been present in anthropology. This ebook, however, discloses that he has never really been a part of it.

Theoretical Anthropology or How to Observe a Human Being (PDF) establishes the foundations and conditions, both theoretical and methodological, which make it feasible to consider the human being as a topic of observation and analysis, for himself as an entity, and not from the viewpoint of understanding social and cultural phenomena.

In a debate with both anthropologists and philosophers, this ebook describes and evaluates the human being as a “volume”. To this end, a specific lexicon is created around the notions of volume, volumography and volumology. These notions are further shown and enriched by several drawings.
