Welcome to the Humanities Matters Blog

Today, I thought I’d post the reasons that the National Humanities Alliance gives for the value of the humanities.  These are some of the high minded reasons we need to remember, demonstrating just how essential the humanities are to the future of the United States and its relationship to the world at large.  Although these reasons do not explicitly mention the value to the student, they do make the argument implicitly.  The student learns all those skills s/he will need to act as a good citizen, a good professional,.
