The Humanities in the World



What are the humanities and what is their role in the wider social and scientific world? The book "The Humanities in the World" serves as a succinct guide for
students, scholars, administrators, and the wider reading public who seek an introduction to the humanities and to their status in contemporary society. It articulates a more world-oriented view of what the humanities are and what they do.

By asking us to rethink how we talk about the humanities, what doing humanistic research entails, and what the concrete impact of the humanities is, the book challenges conventional notions of the alleged isolationism and practical insignificance of humanities research.
