Human Sciences 1

Filed under: Uncategorized — 053601 @ 6:27 pm

“A branch of study which deals with people or their actions, including the social sciences and the humanities, as contrasted with the natural sciences or physical sciences.”

Human sciences are the study of people, including how they interact, how they think, and what they do. They are often qualitative and observational, obtaining knowledge through case studies and examination of preexisting societies, but can also be experimental, observing how people act when put in certain situations. Curiosity about human behaviour is natural in humans, and so it can be argued that the human sciences have been around as long as humanity has, but most have only been recently formally isolated, and considered their own study.They are separate from other sciences, such as natural or physical sciences, which attempt to describe the world we live in Рthe rain cycle, tectonic plates, etc. Рor the universe in general, through mechanics, gravitation, relativity, etc.
