Values of the humanities

This public collection of excerpts and quotations on the “Values of the Humanities” was created as part of the broad research process for this project. It helps us to locate what we mean by the collective term “Critical Humanities”

Humanities in a nutshell

Social mandate

“In so far as the human being takes centre stage as a creator of culture, anthropology is the fundamental science or key science of the humanities.”

“The humanities consist of these three classes of statements: facts, theorems, value judgments and rules.“

(Wilhelm Dilthey)

“The language of the humanities must stop being so complex and convoluted. It has to take on the character of an essay so that everyone who wants to can understand it.”

(Stefan Schulze Beiering)
