Humanities is a broad range of academic disciplines that focuses on the cultural and creative aspects of human nature. Whereas the natural sciences seek to investigate the world empirically, the humanities focus more on the qualitative aspects of what it means to be human. This includes using subjective methods to describe the actions, intentions, and behaviors of humans. The humanities include fields such as anthropology, archaeology, history, law, linguistics, and the visual and performing arts. Someone who studies the humanities is known as a "humanist".
