Chapter Summary

This chapter describes human sociality within the framework of an interdisciplinary anthropology. The presentation of the individual perspectives of description will, however, not only include an analysis of the respective methodological approaches and results, but above all will look at the 'object' of these descriptions: human existence as it shows itself at the site of sociality, i.e., in human interaction. The chapter analyzes human sociality as a basic phenomenological structure of human interaction. It proposes to do this from three different perspectives and to point out the particular relationship between anthropology and sociality that determines each respective modeling or description. The chapter outlines the anthropological concept of each perspective in order to profile the defining anthropological differences.

Keywords:anthropology; human existence; human interaction; human sociality
