Utilizing knowledge from the biological, social, and behavioral sciences, anthropology represents a holistic and humanistic discipline, bringing together a variety of perspectives to learn about ancient peoples and to solve modern problems. All primates are social, even those, such as the lorises, that lead mostly solitary lives. In general, nocturnal primates are less gregarious than are diurnal ones. Among the higher primates (monkeys, apes, and humans), only the owl monkey, Aotus, of South America is nocturnal.
