Issue 3.2 of History of Humanities is out!


Issue 3.2. of History of Humanities has recently been published. It is yet another rich issue containing 6 articles on a variety of topics such as Vico’s philology, 19th century French historiography, criticism in the modern humanities, epistemic virtues and national stereotypes, the marginalization of the humanities in Sweden and an exciting bibliometric analysis of 20th century Venetian historiography. Next to this there are over 20 book reviews. This sharp increase in number of reviews can be taken as a marker of extensive productivity in the field of the history of humanities.

A Chinese Review of my Book in the journal Dushu

I am very happy to see this review article of the extended Chinese version of my book in the major Chinese literary magazine Dushu. It also contains an English summary.

"What’s more, the views of this book are extremely enlightening for the redevelopment for Chinese humanities, which is at the crossroad of how to regain its profoundly humanistic tradition after the New Culture Movement."

A very extensive review of "A New History of the Humanities"
