NHI promotes research, publishing, and teaching in the humanities, with emphasis on the ethical preconditions and purposes of culture and society, the centrality of personal freedom and creativity, and the historical nature of human existence. While NHI promotes a point of view that it regards as indispensable to addressing contemporary needs, it cultivates a spirit of openness and critical reflection, hoping that others will make independent, perhaps wholly unexpected use of its ideas in their own writing, teaching, and other work.

Description: National Humanities Institute
The National Humanities Institute is working to reconstitute the humanities, which over time will influence the fundamental direction of society as a whole. One of the great illusions of our age is that it is politicians who shape society’s future. This belief has long obfuscated the deepening problems of our civilization and the preconditions for overcoming them. The ability of politicians to act is in reality severely circumscribed by the deep-seated beliefs and aspirations of a people and its elites. These beliefs and aspirations, which can be changed only with difficulty, emerge from society’s moral, intellectual, and aesthetical life. The direction of politics and the economy is ultimately traceable to this source.
