Description
In an increasingly neoliberal-capitalist society, the need of the hour is to reexamine the issues that concern humanities. The Crisis in Humanity calls for such a revolution. It is the responsibility of the humanities to lead the way for more progressive politics and social advancement. Modern technology and economic relationships have undermined the crucial defining feature of humans, that is, a capacity for self-determination. Since the renaissance, human beings have possessed the potential for self-producing and self-realization. For them, producing labour was one of the ways through which they realized their mode of being human. However, an economic logic of profit and loss has severely challenged the notion of humans and humanities.
