The Humanities at Carnegie Mellon University as practiced in its four humanities departments, English, History, Modern Languages, and Philosophy, provide broad reflexive analysis of humankind and its artifacts: from poems and other literary forms through mathematical theorems and scientific theories to technology and social organizations. Such analyses incorporate among others hermeneutic, historical, formal, ethnographic, critical, and quantitative methods. This broad and distinctive vision of the humanities has yielded some research themes that provide the basis for interdisciplinary inquiry: historical and global perspectives on culture; science and technology; languages, literature, and discourse; arts and society; cognition and rational decision making; race, gender, and human identity; ethics and public policy.
