A Place for the Humanities in Global Education.
Hosay, Philip M.
For the global education movement, the way to international understanding is the "recognition of the increasing interdependence of nations and cultures." Central to this hopeful vision are the traditional concerns of those areas of knowledge that have come to be known as the humanities--languages, literature, the arts, philosophy, and history. While the importance of the humanities to the aspirations of the global education movement is apparent, the place of the humanities in the American school is far less visible. The evidence suggests that there are almost no humanities in the standard school curriculum with which the goals of global education can be integrated. The current state of the humanities in the school curriculum is reviewed, and the relationship of global education to the humanities is discussed. Suggestions are made for a humanistic approach to global education. (CB)
