<p>So, what actually is an APA style format? Well, it is a publication manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) with a set of formatting and citation guidelines. These guidelines help the writers acknowledge other writers', researchers', or authors' work. The guidelines also include a manual on how to structure and format a paper. Formatting for students, who are new to this style, can seem difficult at first. But once you get the hang of it, you can follow the guidelines without putting in too much effort. So, now let's put the spotlight on some general APA guidelines.</p>
The theory I have chosen is functionalism, whose basis is the systemic aspect of culture, or what might be most properly selected as a "glue" concept of culture. I am however, deeply aware that no theory explains everything and every theory has its constraints, reason the grand theories all failed: phoning for complementarity in the theoretical frameworks and methodological assumptions that informs our research. This simple fact explains the constant progress of theory in anthropology from evolutionism using its unilineality to poststructuralist ideas today. In what follows, I will describe and illustrate the primary premises of functionalism, and spotlight the constraints of the functionalist construction.
Functionalism was one of the initial anthropological ideas.
