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
the centrality of personal freedom and creativity, and the historical
of human existence. While NHI promotes a point of view that it regards
as indispensable to addressing contemporary needs, it cultivates a
of openness and critical reflection, hoping that others will make
perhaps wholly unexpected use of its ideas in their own writing,
and other work.
