National Humanities Institute

The National Humanities Institute seeks to revitalize the humanities, and with them 'the culture,' as the only way of effecting lasting beneficial change. 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. All books published by NHI further this mission. For more information about the National Humanities Institute, visit
