On the Relevance of the Humanities

"The humanities—including the study of languages, literature, history, jurisprudence, philosophy, comparative religion, ethics, and the arts—are disciplines of memory and imagination, telling us where we have been and helping us envision where we are going."

- American Academy of Arts and Sciences
