The School of Human Sciences was founded on the intrinsic motive to construct a new academic discipline and its requisite research and education infrastructure against the background of emerging new social demands. Its founding was marked by the impetus to deconstruct the conventional academic frameworks characteristic of traditional school of letters and school of education
To be equipped with comprehensive knowledge and understanding of various issues that today's human society is faced with. Each academic discipline today should not focus only on their own advancement or issues specific to themselves, but rather strive for integrating important achievements from different disciplines. Such an orientation towards academic development constitutes the fundamental philosophy of the School of Human Sciences.
Accumulating existing achievements alone cannot lead to such a comprehensive understanding. We have to deepen our own academic expertise and also to deal even with technical matters in the context of critical reflection on what human beings are all about. In order to substantiate human sciences as an interdisciplinary and comprehensive discipline, we have to remain modest guided by such a critical reflection.
