How has mankind shaped its long history? How have humans exercised their imaginative abilities to create literature and arts? What are human cognitive mechanisms and languages, which are essential for human cultures? How has mankind created its societies and its various related spaces and organizations? Questions such as these are the central themes in the field of humanities.
