“Because democracy demands wisdom”
What are the humanities?
The term ‘humanities’ includes, but not limited to, the study and interpretation of the following: language, both modern and classical; linguistics; literature; history; jurisprudence; philosophy; archaeology; comparative religion; ethics; the history; criticism and theory of the arts; those aspects of social sciences which have humanistic content and employ humanistic methods; and the study and application of the humanities to the human environment with particular attention to reflecting our diverse heritage, traditions, and history and to the relevance of the humanities to the current conditions of national life.” – National Foundation on the arts and the Humanities Act, 1965, as amended
The humanities to me are about indulging in the art of discovering self through the many classic areas of human historical perspective, insight, imagination, creativity, and research within the borders of this planet that we occupy. Through these avenues of artistry and continuous research, learning and understanding about these entities, our team has undergone an extensive research and recovery course of our humanitarian paradigm that effects all humans within this Earthly sanctuary.
If our research is correct, we could have (collectively) found a source element that is worldwide, an element of the human psyche, which is within all beings of this animal kingdom.
From what your website states and mentions, you assist independent studies and people of various calipers who are looking to build up the planet as a culture means to empower this planet for the better. I read the quote above from your website, and if this country is truly demanding wisdom, the people that make it up are the ones that shape it and mold it into the visions that we have for a better tomorrow.
Thank you for your time.
