The humanities are academic disciplines that study human culture, using methods that are primarily analytical, critical, or speculative, as distinguished from the mainly empirical approaches of the natural sciences.
The humanities included on this site are: Anthropology, Archeology, Architecture, Classics, Education, History, Languages, Law, Literature, Philosophy, Politics, Psychology, Religion, Sociology, Technology.
Scholars in the humanities are called "humanity scholars".
The humanities have their origin in the Classical Greek paideia, a course of general education dating from the sophists in the mid-5th century BCE, which prepared young men for active citizenship in the polis, or city-state.
