Allow me to recommend one of my favorite books, Andrew Abbott (2004) Methods of Discovery: Heuristics for the Social Sciences. Abbott is a sociologist, but one with a deep knowledge of classic anthropology as well as quantitative methods. In this book, he takes us beyond the classic binary opposition anthropology vs sociology to look at what people actually do in the social sciences. He develops a model illustrated by the diagram attached to this message. You might find it interesting.
