The humanities are defined as any study of the human culture. They include the study of art, music, theater, history, philosophy, sociology, law, literature, language, basically anything having to do with human experience.

 Basically the Humanities are mankind's attempt to answer the questions, "What does it mean to be human?" and, "What is the meaning of life?" These questions have plagued human kind since the beginning and we, as humans, do not like unanswered questions.  In our quest to find the meaning of life, some of us have delved into science trying to find answers in atoms and cellular structure.  Others try to talk out their thoughts, thus resulting in literature and music.  Still, others use images to explore the meaning of life, thus resulting in visual art.
