The description of Humanities

Humanities are academic disciplines that study aspects of human culture. In the Middle Ages, the term contrasted with divinity and referred to what is now called classics, the main area of ​​secular study in universities at the time. Today, the humanities are more frequently contrasted with natural and sometimes social sciences as well as professional training.

The humanities use methods that are essential, or speculative, and have a significant historical element-as distinguished from the most empirical approaches of the natural sciences, yet unlike the sciences it has no central discipline. The humanities include ancient and modern languages, literature, philosophy, religion, art and musicology.

Scholars in the humanities are "humanity scholars" or humanists. The term "humanist" also describes the philosophical position of humanism, which some "antihumanist" scholars in the humanities refuse. The Renaissance scholars and artists were also called humanists. Some literature, global studies and art.

Humanities and Social Sciences: Anthropology, Ethnology, and Politics

Anthropology is the holistic "science of humans", a science of the totality of human existence. The discipline deals with the integration of different aspects of the social sciences, humanities and human biology. In the twentieth century, academic disciplines have often been institutionally divided into three broad domains. The natural sciences seek to derive general laws through reproducible and verifiable experiments.

The humanities generally, through their history, literature, music, and arts, with particular emphasis on individuals, events, or eras. The social sciences have attempted to develop scientific methods of understanding social phenomena in a generalizable way, though usually with methods distinct from those of the natural sciences.

The anthropological social sciences, which have been developed in the last few years, have been used in many fields of psychology. Anthropology (like some fields of history) does not necessarily fit into one of these categories, and different branches of anthropology.

Within the United States, anthropology is divided into four sub-fields: archeology, physical or biological anthropology, anthropological linguistics, and cultural anthropology. It is an area that is offered to most undergraduate institutions. The word anthropos (άνθρωπος) is from the Greek for "human being" or "person." Eric Wolf described sociocultural anthropology as "the most scientific of the humanities, and the most humanistic of the sciences."

Literature is a universally accepted definition, but which has variably included all written work; Writing that possesses literary merit; And language that foregrounds literariness, as opposed to ordinary language. Etymologically the term derives from Latin literatura / litteratura "written form with letters", although some definitions include spoken or sung texts.

Literature can be classified according to whether it is fiction or non-fiction, and whether it is poetry or prose; It can be further distinguished according to major forms such as the novel, short story or drama; According to their terms and conditions, or according to their.

The word "humanities" is derived from the Renaissance Latin expression studia humanitatis, or "study of humanitas" (a classical Latin word meaning "culture, refinement, education" and, specifically, an "education Befitting a cultivated man ").

In its use in the early 15th century, the studia humanitatis was a course of studies that consisted of grammar, poetry, rhetoric, history, and moral philosophy, and derived from the study of Latin and Greek classics. The word humanitas also gives rise to the Renaissance Italian neologism umanisti, whence "humanist", "Renaissance humanism".
