Overlap between Science and Humanities

Apr 22, 2012 2 Comments by

Science can be described as an area of knowledge where experiments, observations and scientific methods play a key role in establishing an understanding of how different systems of this life work; Science is categorized in different branches i.e. pure science, Social science, and Applied science. Pure science explains a phenomenon, applied science determines how a particular phenomenon may be put to use and social science study human behavior and structure by implementing the scientific method.

On the other hand humanities deal with the study of human behavior, such as politics, law, linguistics, economics, history, psychology religion, visual and performing arts. Humanities fields use analytical methods in order to draw a conclusion.

When studying different branches of science and humanities we find some overlaps between different subjects of the two domains of knowledge.

Here in the diagram are shown the links between science and humanities.

Both Humanities and social sciences deal with human aspects like law, linguistics, and history. For this reason law, linguistics and history considered as fields of Social science as well as of humanities. The major difference between the two is that humanities involve a more critical and analytical approach whereas social science deals with a more scientific approach.
