Sociology and Social Anthropology- Andre BeteilleIn America the anthropologist studied the tribal society and sociologist studies their own industrial society. Primitive and civilized societies came to be studies by different sets of scholars on the premise that the two societies were different from each other. The differences were regarded as real and not imaginary. However it led to exaggeration of the manner in which social life was being organized. The study of primitive and civilized society by two different disciplines led to the assumption of two societies representing different realities rather than different pattern within same social order. The second difference between the two disciplines is that anthropology studies kinship system because of the ways in which primitive societies are structured by kinship network and its significance more than in the industrial society.
