humanities are the academic disciplines that reflect the different features of a society's culture. moreover, humanities generally resort to critical or speculative methods instead of using empirical methods as natural sciences do. besides art, literature and philosophy, the term 'humanities' also includes other disciplines such as religion, history and politics. famous humanists are bentham, comte, eco and freud.
