Intro to Humanities: Goals: unpack each article -put both articles in conversation with one another -their impact 1) Highly specialized education (engineering, medicine etc) -these specialized courses don't teach essential humanities skills that students need to live in the real world. -changes in education are trying to devalue the humanities studies. -teaching only what you need for the job -dominant industries are not focused on humanity -just more money and material possessions “It is the humanities that teach people to think deeply and reflectively about the good life, the good society and the idea of the good.” -scientific approach= generalization and abstraction -humanities= how you feel about things -”why am i feeling this way?” -the women's movement started by women getting together and talking about how they feel given their state. -if we remove the humanities, how are things like self reflection going to be taught? -radical particularity -a liberal arts education challenges students to question everything and form opinions based on true knowledge. -do not follow blindly ****religions don't promote violence, what people bring to the religion (violence) will alter how that person conveys the religion.** -by saying we need to read he means we need to be self-reflective enough to go beyond western texts and read different texts from all over the world -enrich liberal arts with multiculturalism -question you own texts -challenge your own beliefs -read islamic texts to understand islam and then form proper and true beliefs based on facts. -if you say you believe something it has to be based on true facts -if you are a violent person, you will bring violence to your perspectives -self reflection -emotional introspection -critical thinking -willingness to confront different perspectives -empathy= acting morally -if we have a problem with them, we should have a problem with us. -you can reach the “american dream” and still feel isolated and need a sense of value. (humanity)&(radicals) we need to stop separating these two things and figure out why people become violent. What is the link? -literature helps you put yourself in someone else's shoes *you restate people's arguments

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
