summary

This publication, of exceptional quality and unique in Czech literature, is divided into three thematic sections. The author follows the development of thinking about man from antiquity to the rise of anthropology as an independent field of science; the evolution of humans as species, based on fossil finds; and the 20th-century subdivision of anthropology into many fields. The book closes with a section on the danger of misusing anthropological knowledge to support racist theories.
