Anthroponomy is a rarely used term from the early
1900s referring to the study of laws that determine the
development and behavior of human beings and their
relation to other organisms and the environment. 
Anthroponomy is a branch of anthropology, which is the
science of the origin and development of the human
body. Some more simply classify anthroponomy as the
science of human behavior or human nature. Thus, in
many ways anthroponomy is similar to psychology,
which is the study of mental processes (in humans and
non-human animals) and how they affect behavior in a
certain context. The two fields differ in the exclusive
focus on behavior in anthroponomy without reference to
mental processes.

As time went on, psychology flourished and anthroponomy became an outdated term and
fell out of use in about the early 1930s. The focus of anthroponomy was then subsumed
under anthropology. This broader area not only covers how humans behave, different
aspects of human society and culture, but also studies human evolution and human
variability. Anthoponomy should not be confused with anthroponymy, which is the study
of human names. Anthroponomy comes from the Greek word "anthropo" meaning
"human," and the Greek word "nomos" meaning "law." Put the words together and you
have "human law."
