Anthropology is the study of humanity. The anthropologists’ unlimited curiosity is directed towards their own person and towards their fellow human beings.
Biocosmological, Informational Anthropology is the study of humans, past, present and future, integrated in Cosmos.
The Individual’s Anthropology focused on the elementary component of human society synthesizes, in a unitary form, the knowledge about human individual which is permanently accumulating.

The Earth, which is a planet of the Solar System, was formed and evolved as
part of the WHOLE, in close connection with the evolution of the Universe. The
awareness, knowledge and understanding of our coexistence with the Universe may
clarify a series of obscure problems of our existence and, at the same time,
may bring solutions for other acute problems which our modern society has to
face, such as energy, nature preservation, the origin, evolution and adaptation
of the living and especially of man to the environment, etc. This paper is
trying to theoretically break up the concept of "environment" into
four fundamental contexts: terrestrial, lunar, solar-planetary and cosmic
context. We intend to approach the four contexts that distinctly and
simultaneously influence life on Earth using the interface theory which we
developed in Informational Anthropology, Integronics and Biocosmological
Anthropology.We consider that the living adapted and developed in a
differentiated way according to the impact of these contexts.They may be the
source for the four causalities Aristotle intuited, as well as the cause of
many still unknown phenomena that diversified man's evolution and variability
(Ackrill 1997; Falcon 2008).
