In the process of continuous evolution and development of ethnic research, many research paradigms have been derived. Investigating their roots, ethnic research can be roughly divided into two research paths: ethnic objective characteristics theory and ethnic subjective identity theory. Most of the later research paradigms evolved on this basis.The author tries to make a brief analysis of the ethnic views of Edmund leach and Frederick bath, two famous anthropologists from 1950s to 1970s, and find out how ethnic subjective identity theory has gradually become the core paradigm of ethnic studies.
