There are two different anthropologies – anthropology by historians and anthropology by physicists and mathematicians. The first is academically recognized social science ,whereas , the second is just emerging discipline inspired by results of cosmology of antropic (anthropological ) principle, space life sciences, computational theory of human limits, gravitational and quantum biology, mathematical evolution, experimental econophysics, quantum games applications,applied mathematics and digital formalisms in anthropology.
Lack of formal training in physics and mathematics (correspondingly, a kind of ignorance ) in current anthropological education produces, unfortunately, a substantial gap between anthropologies. Mathematics is language of scientists, hence, misunderstanding of such tool of communication and experimental imagination by anthropologists may isolate anthropological community speaking in some ancient scientific language of the 19th century from brilliant achievements of modern sciences.
Some attempts of Levi-Strauss of 1940s to incorporate elements of modern mathematics ( category mathematics ) became forgotten today and feeling of uselessness of social anthropology became now predominant.
Some analogies with economics, perhaps, can help us to find some balanced approach in anthropology as well.
There exist two economics now - traditional economics used mathematical methods and statistics in political discourse and econophysics - "physical economics" used advance mathematics of quantum physics and relativity’s mathematical imagination. Now they are coexisting worlds, however, numerical economics rapidly evolves now towards econophysics. Similarly, anthropology 1 ( as a social science ) and anthropology 2 ( existing as applications of physical and mathematical methods in anthropology , i.e applications of antropic principle in astrophysics, human -oriented area of gravitational and quantum biology , mathematical theology, artificial intellect anthropology, game theoretical anthropology etc ) can co-exist as diifirent worlds and different imaginations. Their competition can help to develop a new scientific vision of future anthropology.
Generally, thus, sooner or later, economics as well as anthropology could become full scale experimental sciences. We may await, that Solipsism by anthropologists cannot be tolerated always . Scientific ignorance could be reduced However , we also can expect, that anti-scientific attitudes of modern politicians can produce merely another wave of Economic Catastrophes. In particular in EU, where trivial problem of mathematical algorithm of numerical analysis of budget and its provable presentation for public consciousness are usually understood as pure political or historical legacy problem…
