The academy of the human sciences
Lorenzburg values the disciplines that are collectively known as the “Humanities”. These include, byt are not limited to, ethnology, philosophy, history, history of ideas, aesthetics, art history, rhetorics, languages, literature studies, sociology, pedagogics, cultural anthropology and religious studies. The individual’s positive understanding of her self and her society are the basis for a healthy community. Lorenzburg is a passionate advocate for knowledge and general formation. Where the natural sciences invite us to a deeper understanding of nature and the cosmos, the humanities invite us to reflect upon ourselves, our history, contemporary times and future.
