The Subject of Criticism

 


 

    We are told that the humanities are suffering a downturn. Even as critical thinking, analysis, and compassionate assessment—the backbones of the humanities education—are in high demand now more than ever, the world of the academy outside of science and technology continues to experience cuts, downsizing, and general devaluation. Digital Humanities has been one proposed remedy, yet their increasing popularity has paradoxical implications for the humanities at large: rather than challenging the scientistic epistemology, they perpetuate it by subjecting the arts to the empiricist’s analytical toolkit.
