In the late 1980s, Ronald A. Carson, PhD, Director for the Institute for the Medical Humanities and Thomas A, Murray, PhD, also of the Institute, determined that a book review journal was needed for works in the Medical Humanities. The Medical Humanities Review was created to fill this need. Doctors Carson and Murray served as co-Editors and members of the Institutes faculty determined the books to be reviewed and reviewers at the top of their fields were selected to complete the work. The publication began in 1987 and every year until 2005, two issues were produced, one in the spring and another in the fall. The Collection was donated to the Moody Medical Library in 2006..

IMPORTANT! There will be an informational meeting and talk for current students and those interested in enrolling in the minor on Tuesday, Jan. 23, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in Madison Hall 302. The minor is expanding to 50 students (from 25) and there are still a few spaces on the wait list available. Those of you already on the waitlist are guaranteed enrollment, but we hope you can still join us at this meeting to hear a talk given by Dr. Kirk St.Amant, from Louisiana Tech University, on the role of medical humanities in academia.. Typically, we approach the human body from a medical, diagnostic model. But physicians have long recognized that this approach to health and well-being is not sufficient for understanding our somatic life. The cross disciplinary minor in medical humanities provides students with a humanistic and social study of illness, health and the body.

Typically, we approach the human body from a medical, diagnostic model. But physicians have long recognized that this approach to health and well-being is not sufficient for understanding our somatic life. The cross disciplinary minor in medical humanities provides students with a humanistic and social study of illness, health and the body. Drawing upon concepts found in the disciplines contributing to the minor, courses in the curriculum share the common focus of examining how individuals and institutions articulate and disseminate conceptions of the body, including constituent issues such as race, ethnicity, sexuality and gender. Designed to complement any major, the goals of the medical humanities minor include helping students: ...

In 1971, at the invitation of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), a committee of five Kansans established the Kansas Committee for the Humanities to foster appreciation of the humanities among the out-of-school adult public and to relate the humanities to issues of public policy. In 1972, the Committee hired Marion Cott as executive director, received its first NEH award of $125,000, and approved 14 grants over a 12-month period. Forty years, a name change, and a change in directions later, the Kansas Humanities Councils commitment to engaging Kansans with the humanities is still going strong..

Characteristics of students participating in the medical humanities module at KIST Medical College (Nepal) and their feedback scores on the use of literature excerpts within the module.
Since the first successful procedure in 1967 captured public attention, the problematic of heart transplantation has been widely addressed, not simply in medicine, but in anthropology, the social sciences, visual arts, popular culture and more recently in philosophy. The resulting proliferation of these different foci provides a multiperspectival overview of transplantation while at the same time preserving and boxing off the central concerns and assumptions of each unique approach. While significant bioscientific research has been conducted into the procedure and its medical outcomes, few researchers have explicitly connected organ recipients experiences and sociocultural views about transplantation to the materiality of their changed embodiment. Eight years ago, after extensive discussions and some pilot research, some of the current authors wrote a speculative article about the transplantation experience for Medical Humanities.1 The update discussed below moves beyond our specific ...

Kenny Fries first-person narrative The history of my shoes and the evolution of Darwins theory begins with Fries seeing a physician for a medical review, required by the United States Social Security programme for disability-related benefits.1 Although Fries has increasing difficulties with back pain as a result of a difference in the length of his legs, he does not seek medical care from this physician, who, instead, acts as gatekeeper for Fries government benefits. Fries describes the physicians reaction when Fries removes his shoes and socks: "Wow, he breathes a mixture of pity and surprise. … You can walk on those? How can I describe this to them? They wont believe me." (Fries, p3).1 He leaves the office to get his camera and tells his secretary, "Youve got to come in and see this" (Fries, p4).1 Fries wishes that he could recoil his legs, but "wanting to keep my Medicare and other benefits, I cannot curl up my legs. I must not only go through being examined by a doctor who has ...

This summer, 24 rising high school juniors and seniors will learn about the humanities as they explore the cultural history, environment and diversity of north Central Florida. Thanks to a grant from the Florida Humanities Council (the states affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities), the University of Floridas Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere - with support of the Robert and Margaret Rothman Endowment for the Humanities and UFs College of Liberal Arts and Sciences - is offering a weeklong seminar that will take students to shell mounds at Cedar Key, the site of the former town of Rosewood, the springs at Silver Glen State Park and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings house at Cross Creek State Park.

The program enables students to seek understanding of cultural experience through interdisciplinary study of the humanities. Undergraduate and graduate students study social conduct, cultural practices, values, and artistic insights reflecting many human communities. Humanities majors explore methods of bringing the various humanities, such as literature, music, visual forms, and architecture, into an integrative view of the worlds cultural diversity.. Students who wish to base their careers on broad knowledge of American and world cultures will find this major applicable to posts in government, business, education, and the arts. Practical training in a specific professional field (TESOL, journalism, museum work, etc.) may well be taken in conjunction with the major or the minor in Humanities. The B.A. in Humanities is also good preparation for entering a K-12 single subject or multiple subject teaching credential program. Those earning the M.A. in Humanities are qualified to search for a ...

In June, New York Times columnist David Brooks sparked controversy and concern with his column decrying the death of the humanities in American institutions of higher learning.. "The humanities are not only being bulldozed by an unforgiving job market," Brooks wrote. "They are committing suicide because many humanists have lost faith in their own enterprise.". Brooks - who is also a senior fellow at Yales Jackson Institute of Global Affairs who teaches an undergraduate seminar - cited national statistics that show a 50 percent decline in the number of humanities majors in the past 50 years.. Academics and commentators across the country have cited these same figures as heralds of the impending collapse of the humanities disciplines, positing causes including the current state of the economy, a shift toward the sciences, the impracticality of studying ancient texts in a modern world, and as Brooks claimed, a loss of inspiration within the humanities disciplines themselves.. But one researcher, ...

The Digital Humanities Incubator is a program intended to help introduce University faculty, staff, and graduate assistants to digital humanities through a series of workshops, tutorials, "office hours," and project consultations. Participants in the Digital Humanities Incubator are guided through a series of workshops and exercises on the process of developing digital humanities project ideas, finding data, evaluating tools, and crafting a compelling proposal for internal or external funding.. This first phase of the Incubator in 2012-13 concentrated on working with UMD Libraries faculty and staff exclusively. Academic libraries are reinventing themselves in support of teaching, research, and public service, but organizational culture often conspires against meaningful reform. Participating in and supporting digital scholarship is a key strategic need for academic libraries as the materials and analytical practices of many disciplines become increasingly digital. These changes require libraries ...
A favorite stereotype of a humanities scholar is that of a tweedy, pipe smoking, no-longer-middle-aged man surrounded by dusty tomes scribbling away on a yellow pad. If a computer manages to find its way into this bookish vision, it is tucked quietly in a corner and used only for the simplest kind of word processing. There are a growing number of real humanities scholars who would scoff at this stereotype, and rightly so. Todays scholar is more likely to point to the wealth of digital manuscripts and then complain that computing has lagged behind the needs of the Arts and Humanities. Some assert that the complex task of weather mapping is childs play compared to the need to seek out primary and secondary resources, compare and analyze multiple texts, and bring cohesion to disparate opinions--tasks that are all in a days work for todays scholar.. 1.

Headline: Bitcoin & Blockchain Searches Exceed Trump! Blockchain Stocks Are Next!. Wow, We called this one a couple of weeks ago - the Global Elites plan to kill off all space colonization and forcefully confine all humanity to the earth, to keep all the fish in one barrel, where they can take their sport depopulating the earth.. In observing the stepped up game of worldwide genocide, the depopulation of humanity by 13/14 = 93%, by the self-appointed Corporate Elites against humanity, we wondered, "Why now?". Well, of course. Its a race against time. They did manage to stop all manned interplanetary exploration by putting a halt to the moon landings for 46 whole years, but they couldnt stop it forever. Its not just a goal of depopulating the earth and sadistically uber-controlling what few slaves are left of humanity, but of controlling every last living soul of humanity.. …(Continue reading how they plan to do it, here)…. ...

And the competition keeps getting fiercer. "It used to be, in my day, that we werent expected to publish as graduate students. Today, its so competitive that if you dont publish as a graduate student, you really dont have a good chance of getting an extant position.". In addition to the tight job market, the Universitys Graduate Aid Initiative (GAI) has made graduate enrollment in the humanities both more affordable, but also more competitive. Announced in 2007 by President Robert Zimmer, the GAI pledged $50 million in funding to incoming doctoral students in the Humanities and Social Sciences for up to five years, covering tuition, health insurance, and a stipend. As part of the program, $2 million was allocated to providing health insurance to students who have matriculated since 2003 for the first five years in their programs.. But since each student comes with a higher price tag for the Humanities division, fewer students are being admitted. "The Humanities division in general just ...

Program Director: Dave Bennetts. The Humanities major offers students an interdisciplinary program of study in classical, medieval and Renaissance, or modern European studies. The major serves students whose interests in these areas extend beyond the scope of the standard curriculum of a single humanities department by offering students the opportunity to choose an interdisciplinary course of study. Students in this major acquire a broad-based understanding of a specified historical period or theme in classical, medieval and Renaissance, or modern European culture by integrating course work from at least three different areas within the Humanities Division: history, philosophy, literature, theology, and the fine arts (art, music, or theater). The humanities major builds on the skills emphasized in the core curriculum. This major supports the coordinate mission by fostering a unified liberal arts curriculum, leading students to a better understanding of the complexities of the human condition. ...

We use theatrical tools to stimulate thought, provoke dialogue and promote change by examining values, differences and human experience in ways that are supportive and conducive to learning. The Humanities Troupe was re-established in 2005 as a university wide initiative, and created by faculty in the Department of Theatre & Film, with the support of the Diversity Liaison Committee, the Humanities Troupe now operates on an adhoc basis. Housed in the Department of Theatre and Film, the Humanities Troupe is a group of graduate and undergraduate students who, with the guidance of director and faculty adviser Emily Aguilar, present performances on vital topics to various populations. Values and differences are vital to a broad spectrum of the population, yet each group has its own particular needs and concerns. Our focus is on the concerns of the students, faculty and staff at Bowling Green State University as well as issues of concern to the broader community. The Humanities Troupe presents a number of
MISSION STATEMENT. The Humanities Film and Lecture Series at Vincennes University seeks to promote student and public interest in the humanizing aspects of our shared culture in order to understand ourselves as members of diverse communities, citizens of one nation, and inhabitants of one planet. Public lectures and films may address enduring or emerging questions central to the arts and humanities, or questions arising from other disciplines to which the arts and humanities might speak. Events in the series may be co-sponsored with particular programs or departments within the college, or with other colleges, and with community organizations.. OUR PURPOSE. The College of Humanities supports its individual departments and broad humanitarian inquiry in order to help students, faculty, and the general public to: ...
During the summer vacation, we organized our second Text Encoding Summer School, and also ran a very successful international conference on Teaching and Language Corpora (TALC98). HCU staff presented papers at the International ALLC-ACH Conference held this year in Debrecen, and at the third Digital Resources in the Humanities conference (DRH98) held this year at Glasgow University, which is part-sponsored by the HCU. Several HCU staff, in particular Dr Lee, worked closely with the Humanities faculties during the recruitment of new Humanities IT Support Staff. Mr Stephens will take on the job of informally co-ordinating support for the new appointees. The Humanities Computing Development Team is now established and has already begun work on four new projects: a separate report on the first few months of this major new development is attached.

Before joining the University of Texas at Dallas I retired from the Dallas County Community College District where I was the Dean of Instruction, Academic Enrichment Programs at Richland College. In addition to administrative duties, I taught history and humanities in learning community classes, and online.

I also served as Richlands project director for three CCHA and National Endowment for the Humanities grant projects, Advancing Humanities through Technology, Faces of America, and the Summer American Landmarks Workshops: Remembering the Alamo. I earned Excellence in Teaching awards from National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) in 1993, and 2000, was featured in Whos Who in American ...
Carolyn Gregoire wrote an article in The Third Metric of the Huffington Post (1/30/14), espousing the values of a humanities education. She included some interesting quotes which alluded to: Not worrying about post college when you enter college That money is a bad way to measure the value of a college major, and Even more important, that college students should be encouraged to study something for which they have a natural talent. There exists a stereotype called the broke-unemployed-humanities-major, but proponents of the humanities claim that "career-specific skills can often be learned on the job, whereas critical thinking and problem-solving skills are invaluable benefits of a humanities education" (The Third Metric, Huffington Post, 1/30/14). I thought I would challenge the stereotype by listing the names and area of study of some very successful humanities majors.

Having learned more about the myths and stories of Western civilization, I am understanding more how study of the humanities (art, history, and literature) can be used to help people better understand and communicate with one another. It is obvious that the study of humanities is not just a college course, but it is an ongoing process and practice in life.. The humanities can first be used to understand the past which has created the present. The culture which we have was shaped by the past. Facts, findings, and literature of even thousands of years ago have influenced our world today. Knowing this past can allow people to understand our present; knowing how we came to this present helps us to communicate about it and the future.. The study of the humanities can also be used to realize differing interpretations of life and history. Studying facts of the past helps to understand literature of the past. Art reflects the cultures of the past, and shows how we achieved what we have today. For ...
The Department of Digital Humanities offers postgraduate programmes in Digital Asset and Media Management, Digital Culture and Society and Digital Humanities as well a PhD Programme. The primary objective of the Department of Digital Humanities is to study the possibilities of computing for arts and humanities scholarship and, in collaboration with local, national and international research partners across the disciplines, to design and build applications which implement these possibilities, in particular those which produce online research publications.
The Consortium for Online Humanities Instruction has three goals: 1) to explore how online humanities instruction can improve student learning outcomes; 2) to determine how smaller, independent liberal arts institutions can make more effective use of their instructional resources and whether they can reduce costs through online humanities instruction and institutional collaboration; and 3) to provide an opportunity for CIC member institutions to build their capacity for online humanities instruction and share their successes with other liberal arts colleges. The Consortium is funded through two generous grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Ithaka S+R, a leading research and consulting service for academic innovation in the digital environment, provides advice to participating institutions and serves as the project evaluator ...
Founded in 1959, the Center for Humanities at Wesleyan University is among the oldest in the United States. In celebration of the Centers 50th year, we seek to reflect upon the category of "the human" in the humanities.. At the time of the Centers founding, this category was all but unquestioned; it was assumed that "the human" transcended all cultural and history specificity by virtue of a set of universal cognitive, moral, emotional, and creative attributes. The last fifty years have brought major challenges to these assumptions. The purported unity of the human subject, occasionally unsettled by claims such as those of psychoanalysis, has been trenchantly interrogated through post-structuralist appraisals of the human subject as decentered, fragmented, heteronomous, or "dead." Without a stable "humanity," the humanities themselves consequently seem lacking epistemic foundation. The visual and performing arts similarly have become sites for enacting critiques of identity, authorship and even ...
The realms of pedagogy and knowledge are explored by Will Fitzhugh and Michael F. Shaughnessy, while Greg Eft paints a panorama of concerning the definition of beauty as it pertains to the humanities. Geni Flores then follows in a chapter that promotes and accentuates the importance of multiculturalism and diversity as instruments of social justice. Josh McVey interprets Scripture and its origins within the humanities while Anna Beck explores historical American theatre and provides a glimpse of this realm through various windows. Opal Greer sheds light on what we may be able to discern from the humanities past and envisions the realm of their future in universities and academia. Professor Elder contributes a second time to this manuscript, boldly going where not historian has gone before and examining the relevance of space history to this subject matter. Bringing the book to a close, Herbert London offers his perspective on the future of the humanities. Scholars, researchers, critics, ...

Cards Against Humanity is a party game in which players complete fill-in-the-blank statements using words or phrases typically deemed as offensive, risqué or politically incorrect printed on playing cards. It has been compared to the Apples to Apples card game, originated from a Kickstarter campaign, and has received media acclaim. Its title references the phrase "crimes against humanity", reflecting its politically incorrect content. Cards Against Humanity was created by a group of eight Highland Park High School alumni, including Ben Hantoot and Max Temkin, as a party game for a New Years Eve celebration. Heavily influenced by the popular Apples to Apples card game, it was initially named Cardenfreude and involved a group of players writing out the most abstract and, often, humorous response to the topic question. The name was later changed to Cards Against Humanity, with the answers pre-written on the white cards known today. Co-creator Ben Hantoot cited experiences with various games such ...

Open Source (iTunes Feed Web Site) is back. The radio show hosted by Christopher Lydon hit some financial snags last summer and went off-air. Now, thanks to the Watson Institute at Brown University, the program has found new life, and its already regaining some of its old momentum.. Right before the New Year, the show aired a three-part interview with Harold Bloom, Americas most well known literary critic. As always, Bloom doesnt hesitate to share his views here. But he saves his sharpest remarks for when he addresses the state of the humanities in the American academy (MP3 - iTunes - Feed - Web Site). For Bloom, a longtime professor at Yale, its not a pretty picture. The humanities, particularly the study of literature, has "committed suicide" by "going in for political correctness to a simply sickening degree" and "getting away from canonical standards [and] cognitive and aesthetic standards." The humanities, Bloom summarily says, "are not worth celebrating until they establish themselves ...

The Freshman Humanities Colloquium, commonly referred to as the Humanities Seminar, is the centerpiece of the Bridge Year. Each Townsend Harris High School senior is required to take a two-semester seminar that is team taught by a member of the Queens College faculty and a member of the THHS faculty.

It is common to hear undergraduates and recent college graduates preparing for a career in science complain: I think I wasted a lot of time in college being forced to take humanities classes that had nothing to do with my area of study. This is one of many manifestations of the ongoing centuries-long battle over the relationship between the sciences and the humanities.From a historical point of view, until the mid-19th century, the humanities (i.e., grammar, rhetoric, history, literature, languages, and moral philosophy) held the upper hand. At Oxford and Cambridge Universities, the gold standard models for American education, the areas of study consisted mainly of classics, mathematics, or divinity. However, in 1847 Yale College broke with this tradition and formed the School of Applied Chemistry. This became the Yale Scientific School and in 1861 it was renamed the Sheffield Scientific School. Sheffields 3-year undergraduate program focused on chemistry, engineering, and independent research. It

University Studies in the Humanities are divided into two sets of courses. The courses in Step 1 consider ancient texts and those in Step 2 consider texts from after the classical Christian era. There is great diversity among the separate courses, but within each step all courses include certain common texts or common authors to provide a shared intellectual experience for the students. Through critical reading and discussion, and especially through intensive writing, students increase their inventory of analytic terms, sharpen their conceptual and speculative skills, work toward precision in language, and learn methodologies of reasoned discourse. S = Courses of Instruction As the Humanities Program was intended essentially for first-year students and only students who entered Brandeis before the fall of 1994 are subject to the University Studies requirements, no courses in the University Studies Humanities Program will be offered in the academic year 1995-96 and beyond.

When the CTI Centre receives as a response to a survey undertaken that yes, professor Lapping does use computers in his teaching, and yes that use is a word processor for the creation of lecture handouts then one does wonder how, after over ten years of initiatives, does one promote the integration of technology. However, the growth in networked and CD-ROM-based resources for the humanities might just be the means by which the future of computer-assisted learning in the humanities can be directed.. The large number of science-based TLTP products suggests that the certain aspects of the science disciplines lend themselves to courseware (especially the mathematical sciences). The education of a humanist, however, proceeds by discussion, the formulation of arguments and opinions, the experimentation with ideas and their communication to peers and professors. There are few text books in the humanities and thus it is not surprising that courses on computer do not lend themselves to this approach ...

James Murdoch, Chairman and Chief Executive, Europe and Asia of News Corporation, said: "I am delighted to help launch the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities. Digital technology has significantly changed the way we communicate and share knowledge. The Centre holds great promise, not only for finding new ways of applying technology to the study of the human record but also for providing insights and perspective on how we think about culture and creativity in the future.. "As a discipline, the digital humanities have grown from the simple use of databases in scholarly work, to an approach championed here at UCL: a partnership in which technology is neither the servant of the humanities, nor its master, but an equal partner. The result has been a balance that has fostered innovation on both sides..

Shifting Paradigms is a volume of diverse articles on cross-border policy and pluralism written by Humanity in Action Senior Fellows. Paradigm shifts occur when the usual and accepted ways of doing or thinking are found to no longer be fit for purpose. The rapid onslaught of new challenges the international order has faced in recent years make many feel that history is accelerating, leaving established ways of doing things in its wake. New answers are needed as the world again enters a period of turbulence. The authors of this richly varied collection of articles on policy and pluralism across borders are singularly qualified to help in this search for answers. Their perspectives and analyses demonstrate a nuanced ingenuity that todays policymakers are often sorely missing. They bear the potential to steer policy discussions in directions that are democratic, inclusive, and sustainable.

It might be fruitful to also consider less extreme expressive situations where the stakes are not quite as high. The MLA conference in December 2009 provides an interesting example because of the use of networked (mainly text based) communication channels, and how this communication and exposure contributed to a conference that was not technology focused, as well as the external "reading" of the conference. In particular, the digital humanities contingency at the conference got received fairly large exposure despite their comparatively small numbers. According to Amanda Frenchs calculation, a mere three percent of the conference participants were tweeters (in the sense of producing "Twitter entries" or tweets), and only few of these came from outside of "digital humanities." The relatively large exposure was partly because there were many digital humanities-like sessions, many of them reportedly well attended, but also because the digital footprint of this contingency was comparatively large. ...
With humanity now realizing that government is a useless obstacle in the way of human thriving and freedom, I expect we will witness phenomenal things in the coming months and years. I see humanity now actually slowly but surely pulling together in an all-out effort to save itself from government.. I never thought of this concept myself until recently and I dont see any other way to articulate it. This is where we are. We are now seeing the expression of this reality in many freedom lovers world wide. This was essentially the very same spirit behind the founding of America. This was the spirit behind the Constitution and Bill of Rights and the primary meme of those initial years when America was founded. It doesnt mean that the founding fathers were saints or any of that, it means that the spirit of freedom that drove them to do what they did is back, in fact this modern-day rekindling of freedom is and will be much more intense than what the founding fathers imagined. Humanity is now ...

The Age of Misrule is proving to be a fantastic read. Adding a bit to what is explored in a fantastic review at rob will review, in the Age of Misrule Chadbourn presents something of the anti-Tolkien fantasy, while embracing many of its standards. Tolkien explores Britains mythology by creating a world where magic is leaving, and humanity in all its imperfection is rising. Chadbourn explores Britains mythology by taking our world and bringing back the magic, myths and legend - a world where humanity may be on the way out. All at once, humanity looses science, technology, and religion. Chadbourn shows us a world where all humanity has is each other as they fight for survival and they slowly understand what they may have gained through their loss. This is an exploration of humanity - the reality of humanity rather than its ideals, what has been lost through science, technology, and dogmatic religion, and what just might be gained. This is a series that has completely captured me and I cant wait ...

"Poetry is really on its way back," she noted. "The pendulum is swinging back.". With new technology and social media, such as YouTube and the evolution of new forms such as rap, "more people are listening to poetry again," she said. Finch pointed out that April is National Poetry Month and her other book, "A Poets Craft," released last year, "grew directly out of my teaching at Stonecoast.". Finchs latest book, "Spells," is "putting my own ideas into action," she said. The book was formally launched in March at the Association of Writers and Writing Programs annual conference and book fair in Boston and was received "really well," the poet said. The book was completely sold out, including her own personal ...

Hippocrates NHS Award winners, commended poets and judges. Hippocrates Prize. Judge Jo Shapcott said: The Hippocrates Prize, since its inception in 2009, has quickly established itself as one of the most important international prizes for poetry as well as providing a unique place for poetry and medicine to meet. Its international reach is reflected in this years prizewinners who come from countries all round the globe, including New Zealand, the USA, Ireland, and Israel."

There was a lively range of subjects and perspectives in this years batch, and the judges were lucky enough to be debating the merits of some outstanding poems which have in common their sheer brio, skill, and passion, and often an exhilarating deftness in deploying medical language so that it sings.".

Inhumanism is one of the great modern productions, as barbarously polyglot as automobile. Ananthropism and inhumanity are, in contrast, as pure and urbane as autokineton and ipse-mobile, while car conceals a classical engine made from Celtic parts under a rather battered and banal modern hood. Splicing philology with sexology, Havelock Ellis once complained that homosexuality, another barbarous modern coinage, is "a bastard term compounded of Greek and Latin elements."2 "Homogenic has been suggested as a substitute," he mused.3 Inhumanism compounds a Latin prefix of negation, the Latin adjective corresponding to homo, and the Greek suffix of verbs in -ίζειν. So whereas inhumanity and humanity alike trace their lineage to humanitas, a Latin noun of quality or state, inhumanism is verbal, suggesting a process and an imperative, like modernism and its many creeds and clubs: be modern, express yourself, construct in cubes, seize the future, and surpass the real. The Greek suffix turns a term ...
