What are the Humanities?
The Humanities are "those branches of knowledge that concern themselves with human beings
and their culture or with analytic and critical methods of inquiry
derived from an appreciation of human values and of the unique ability
of the human spirit to express itself. As a group of educational
disciplines, the humanities
are distinguished in content and method from the physical and
biological sciences and, somewhat less decisively, from the social
sciences. The humanities include the study of all languages and literatures, the arts, history, and philosophy." Encyclopædia Britannica Online, 2010
