What I have gained from studying the Humanities:
Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the Humanities, I have found myself looking at questions from perspectives not usually paired together. For instance, in Western HUM, we discussed the poetic and philosophic nature of Euclid. In Eastern HUM, I recently wrote an essay on how religious and filial norms in 11th century China intersected with political rhetoric. In both of these circumstances, I have found myself grappling with disciplines I am very comfortable with and disciplines I am less so—for instance poetry more than geometry. Understanding religion in the context of politics, however, or geometry as a form of poetry, sheds light on both disciplines, which pushes me further as a thinker, reader, and writer.
