Of What Use Are the Humanities?
Hoffman, Robert
Academe, v68 n3 p25-27 May-Jun 1982
The criteria of practical benefit and objectivity applied to the humanities cannot keep them from their rightful place alongside mathematics and sciences as a worthwhile endeavor. These criteria are misleading. The humanities forge a sense of beauty, compassion, honor, humor, and shape love, friendship, and enmity. (MSE)
