Franz Boas (born July 9, 1858, died December 21, 1942) was a German-American anthropologist and a pioneer of modern anthropology who has been called the “Father of American Anthropology”. Franz Boas has had an enduring influence on anthropology. Virtually all anthropologists today accept Boas’ commitment to empiricism and his methodological cultural relativism. Moreover, virtually all cultural anthropologists today share Boas’ commitment to field research involving extended residence, learning the local language, and developing social relationships with informants. Finally, anthropologists continue to honor his critique of racial ideologies.
