The Humanities

The Humanities.
The ABCs of Humankind

The topic “Languages of Humankind” constitutes the framework for the Year of the Humanities. Language is the element common to all the different disciplines of the humanities. The constitutional link between tradition, continuity, topicality and future viability in the humanities can be experienced through language. Language includes speech as well as facial expression and body language, music and dance. All this is symbolically reflected in the central motto of the Science Year: “The Humanities. The ABCs of Humankind.”

Facts & Files researched facts and figures on the humanities, their fields of interest and important projects.
