As all professors do, they try to show their subject is the best. I am studing Introduction to Humanities and the professor says that humanities covers everything. Everything as in science, history, geography, philosophy, literature, music etc. Now I'm not comfortable with this. Surely it can't cover everything. I usually like to know what exactly the subject is going to teach me but in this case, humanities seem too vague a term. Wikipedia says it is the study of human culture. Well every academic discipline is part of human culture therefore it is the study of everything? I want to know exactly what humanities aims to study.
