Human Science

Analyzing what it means to be human from various angles.

Human science is a relatively new field of research that concerns the study of what it means to be human. While the subject of the research is humanity itself, there are multiple approaches to this field of study. For example, studying humans and the environments they live in uses approaches from fields of the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The appeal of study in human science lies in the fact that this variety of approaches makes analysis of the human condition from multiple angles possible. The three main fields of research covered are psychology, sociology, and education. Studies also cover behavioral science, philosophy, cultural anthropology and media as they are related to humanity. Human science covers all aspects of the human condition, which keeps it closely-related to social trends. As a new field of study, its systems have not yet been fully established, but as it stands today, the study of human science provides opportunities for novel research that has been receiving growing attention from various fields of academia.
