From my own views humanities is the study of humans from different time frames and the cultures and how it changed up until today’s time frame. The development of humanities was established from the modern times when things were done by hand for example farming, when you want fresh food farmers would plant the seed and attend to the farm as needed as far as today’s world artificial food is made and many of it is not health nor does it taste the same. In today’s modern world machines do all the work for you and it has taking away lots of knowledge from today’s society because if machines break down most people would not know how to survive. Also this goes for the different categories such as art/paintings back in the modern day’s paintings where hand painted such as the sisten chapel, it was painted on the celling by man as for today it would most likely be laid by stencil and painted which in that case there’s no hard work put into it. There were significant movements in cultures from the school views as they started out in the ancient Egypt time frame the kids started school at 4yrs old. In ancient Egypt, boys from wealthy families started school at the age of four. Before a child started his first year of school, his father decided what his son's occupation would be in the future. Egyptians were very practical, so kids at schools were taught only the subjects that would be useful in their career. The only boys who were taught mathematics were the ones that were going to be tax collectors. The ability to read and write was considered a very important skill because if you could read and write you could have a well-paid job, and respect of your fellow countrymen. Boys had lessons at the school master's house. They walked there early in the morning carrying a basket with bread cakes and two jugs of beer that their mothers had prepared for lunch. They were dismissed at noon. The lessons consisted of memorization and copying parts of old scripts. The students sat
"Am I Free or Determined?"
Since I learn to understand the world I always believe in two saying that, “everything happens for a reason’ and “never compunction the past because it made you who you are today”. I have felt that these statements have always been supportive and positive in my life. After studying determinism, these statements seem to epitomize the theory of cause and effects. Determinism is the doctrine that all events, including human choice and decisions, are necessarily determined….

•The term Humanities comes from the Latin word, “humanitas”

The humanities are academic disciplines which study the human condition, using methods that are largely analytic, critical, or speculative, as distinguished from the mainly empirical approaches of the natural and social sciences.

value that no other subject can describe those
values which are directly an exact.

Romantic and passionate love
To me Romantic and Passionate love is a huge deal that most people take for granted. People today don’t seem to put as much thought into saying “I love you” to someone as they should and don’t really have to same definition of love as some of these poets do. The poet that best represents my definition of love is Rainer Maria Rilke. Her poem simply says this “For one human being to love another is perhaps the most difficult task of all, the….
