Aims and Purposes of the ESHHS
The purpose of ESHHS is to promote international, multidisciplinary cooperation in scholarly activity and research in the history of the human sciences. The Society supports the history and historiography of the human sciences in their broadest sense, including psychology, pedagogy, sociology, anthropology, political science, criminology, linguistics and so forth, as well as relevant specializations within biology, history and philosophy, for example. The Society is free from affiliation to any particular discipline or scholarly tradition. It is truly international in membership and outlook, with members from nearly every European country, North America, and many other parts of the world. The Society uses the English language in its activities.
The aims of the ESHHS are to:
- provide a broad perspective on contemporary scientific activities in order to counteract the narrow views of various disciplines and their interactions;
- broaden scientific perspective by close cooperation with scholars in other countries;
- strengthen and increase professionalism of scholarly research in the history of the human sciences.
