Scope

Humanities research explores the origins and products of the human capacity for creativity and communication, the "elit works" or best products of the human race. It include branches of knowledge that concern themselves with human beings and their culture or with analytic and critical methods of inquiry derived from an appreciation of human values and of the unique ability of the human spirit to express itself.

The Humanities have been accused of reflecting a certain bias, in particular in its ocus on "old over new", "men over women", and for employing idealised conceptions with strong normative connotations. This humanistic focus is challenged by Social Sciences.
