Despite the fact that anthropology in Poland faces the same crisis as anthropology worldwide, namely, the disappearance of the traditional subjects of interest, it still maintains, a unique theoretical and methodological perspective, the main points of which are: holism, qualitative methods, methodical skepticism and a focus on the primacy of culture. This approach also appears to be useful in doing research on complex modern cultures. In its shift from the more traditional to more modern subjects of interest, Polish anthropological research has focused on national identity, popular culture, subcultures, consumer culture, and lifestyle, among others.
