课程简介(教工部数据)
数万年乃至数百万年前,地球上许多不同的人类物种曾在非洲、亚洲和欧洲的土地上先后出现、演化和消亡,有时为了生存而竞争,有时为了生存而合作。基因分析、远古骨骼、石制工具、遗迹等考古数据表明,在人类700万年的进化历程中,我们(智人)是唯一的幸存者。古人类学通过化石和考古遗迹研究人类进化,使我们能够找到诸如“人类的祖先是谁?”“他们的日常生活是怎样的?”“为什么只有我们活了下来,而其他人属却灭亡了?”这些问题的答案。本课程将介绍现代人类的演化史,包括使用工具的技术、身体形态和地理分布的变化。通过接触古人类学,探索人类文明的起源和演化,学生能够更好地理解人类远古的物种和社会;通过了解古人类的生活方式、社会组织和生存策略、智慧,有助于我们欣赏现代人类生活的多样性。同时对于我们认识人类自身身体特征和行为也具有重要意义。


Various types of humans previously roamed the landscapes of Africa, Asia, and Europe, sometimes competing or cooperating in a struggle for survival, frequently to the point of extinction. As indicated by genetic, fossil, and archaeological data, we (Homo sapiens) are the lone survivors of a 7-million-year journey towards mankind. Palaeoanthropology (the study of human evolution through fossil and archaeological remains) enables us to answer questions like, "Who were these ancestors?" "What was their daily life like?" "Why did we survive while others perished? " Exploring these issues about our common past helps us appreciate modern life, variation, and diversity. This course will expose students to Palaeoanthropology to better comprehend the diverse variety of hominin species and societies that existed in the past. We will explore our lineages' evolutionary history, including technology, morphological variation, and geographic distribution, allowing students to consider their own physical traits and behaviors with this perspective.

全英授课,老师是24年春新来的,人非常专业友好。

课堂任务几乎没有,也不强制。整个学期下来几次随堂测,有开有闭,知识点挺重复的。

对古人类学感兴趣的同学千万不要错过,课程由远及近,逻辑清晰,十分有趣!

期末抢答复习有小礼品,我玩得很开心。
