#1. Barth's approach tears up any possibility of dialogue between faith and unfaith or between theology and other human sciences. Theology just says what it says on the basis of scripture, and that's that. - Author: George Pattison
Human Sciences quotes by George Pattison
#2. It is the task of the "science of man" to arrive eventually at a correct description of what deserves to be called human nature. What has often been called "human nature" is but one of its many manifestations - and often a pathological one - and the function of such mistaken definition usually has been to defend a particular type of society as being the necessary one. - Author: Erich Fromm
Human Sciences quotes by Erich Fromm
#3. The idea of a character dichotomy between women and men has been overwhelmingly, decisively, refuted. The broad psychological similarity of men and women as groups can be regarded, on the volume of evidence supporting it, as one of the best-established generalizations in all the human sciences. - Author: Raewyn W. Connell
Human Sciences quotes by Raewyn W. Connell
#4. Thus, in accordance with the spirit of the Historical School, knowledge of the principles of the human world falls within that world itself, and the human sciences form an independent system. - Author: Wilhelm Dilthey
Human Sciences quotes by Wilhelm Dilthey
#5. Linguistics is very much a science. It's a human science, one of the human sciences. And it's one of the more interesting human sciences. - Author: Samuel R. Delany
Human Sciences quotes by Samuel R. Delany
#6. For Immanuel Kant, the term anthropology embraced all the human sciences, and laid the foundation of familiar knowledge we need, to build solidly grounded ideas about the moral and political demands of human life. Margaret Mead saw mid-twentieth-century anthropology as engaged in a project no less ambitious than Kant's own, and her Terry Lectures on Continuities in Cultural Evolution provide an excellent point to enter into her reflections. - Author: Margaret Mead
Human Sciences quotes by Margaret Mead
#7. There is a dramatic conflict in what is commonly called the human sciences. Should we postulate a typical human reality and describe its psychic modalities, taking into account only the imperfections, or should we not rather make a constant, solid endeavor to understand man in an everchanging light? - Author: Frantz Fanon
Human Sciences quotes by Frantz Fanon
#8. Thus there arose in me both a need and a plan for the foundation of the human sciences. - Author: Wilhelm Dilthey
Human Sciences quotes by Wilhelm Dilthey
#9. We cannot "psychologize" the grace of God. God's actions are outside and above our human sciences. - Author: John Powell
Human Sciences quotes by John Powell
#10. Thus physics, chemistry, biology, anthropology, sociology, history, the arts all interpenetrate each other and cohere if considered as a single convergent study. The physical studies scaffold our understanding of the life sciences, which scaffold our understanding of the human sciences, which scaffold the humanities, which scaffold the arts: and here we stand. What then is the totality? What do we call it? Can there be a study of the totality? Do history, philosophy, cosmology, science, and literature each claim to constitute the totality, an unexpandable horizon beyond which we cannot think? Could a strong discipline be defined as one that has a vision of totality and claims to encompass all the rest? And are they all wrong to do so? - Author: Kim Stanley Robinson
Human Sciences quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#11. The problem is that while some incentives are obvious, many aren't. And simply asking people what they want or need doesn't necessarily work. Let's face it: human beings aren't the most candid animals on the planet. We'll often say one thing and do another - or, more precisely, we'll say what we think other people want to hear and then, in private, do what we want. In economics, these are known as declared preferences and revealed preferences, and there is often a hefty gap between the two. - Author: Anonymous
Human Sciences quotes by Anonymous
#12. Heroic poetry has ever been esteemed the greatest work of human nature. - Author: John Dryden
Human Sciences quotes by John Dryden
#13. He makes me weak and vulnerable and absolutely perfect in all of my flaws. Like a human. - Author: Sarah Noffke
Human Sciences quotes by Sarah Noffke
#14. Humor can help churches humble. It puts the community in touch with its inevitable limitations as a human organization, and its fundamental reliance to God. That leads us to God through the gateway of humility. - Author: James Martin
Human Sciences quotes by James Martin
#15. Beast did have one major purpose. That much I do know. A monumental plan to transform humanity and the human world. - Author: Haruki Murakami
Human Sciences quotes by Haruki Murakami
#16. People liked to talk; there were very few exceptions, the question was how you made them do it. Some were amenable to alcohol; others liked a spotlight; and then there were those who merely needed proximity to another conscious human being. A subsection of humanity would become loquacious only on one favorite subject; it might be their own innocence, or somebody else's guilt. - Author: Robert Galbraith
Human Sciences quotes by Robert Galbraith
#17. No matter how high are one's estimates of human stupidity, one is repeatedly and recurrently startled by the fact that:
a) people whom one had once judged rational and intelligent turn out to be unashamedly stupid.
b) day after day, with unceasing monotony, one is harassed in one's activities by stupid individuals who appear suddenly and unexpectedly in the most inconvenient places and at the most improbable moments. - Author: Carlo M. Cipolla
Human Sciences quotes by Carlo M. Cipolla
#18. The human condition means that we can zone out and forget what the hell we're doing. - Author: Bill Murray
Human Sciences quotes by Bill Murray
#19. The only power that can effect transformations of the order (of Jesus) is love. It remained for the 20th century to discover that locked within the atom is the energy of the sun itself. For this energy to be released, the atom must be bombarded from without. So too, locked in every human being is a store of love that partakes of the divine- the imago dei, image of god ... And it too can be activated only through bombardment, in its case, love's bombardment. The process begins in infancy, where a mother's initially unilateral loving smile awakens love in her baby and as coordination develops, elicits its answering smile ... A loving human being is not produced by exhortations, rules and threats. Love can only take root in children when it comes to them- initially and most importantly from nurturing parents. Ontogenetically speaking, love is an answering phenomenon. It is literally a response. - Author: Huston Smith
Human Sciences quotes by Huston Smith
#20. We should recognize that they reflect things that we're doing, not just things that are happening to us. We should understand that, although some of the human-caused factors may seem virtually inexorable, others are within our control. - Author: David Quammen
Human Sciences quotes by David Quammen
#21. So many of man's inventions - the syringe, the sword, the pen, the gun - were metaphorical cocks, but the internal combustion engine had to have been dreamt up by a man who had looked upon the human heart. - Author: Joe Hill
Human Sciences quotes by Joe Hill
#22. The United States, for generations, has sustained two parallel but opposed states of mind about military atrocities and human rights: one of U.S. benevolence, generally held by the public, and the other of ends-justify-the-means brutality sponsored by counterinsurgency specialists. Normally the specialists carry out their actions in remote locations with little notice in the national press. That allows the public to sustain its faith in a just America, while hard-nosed security and economic interests are still protected in secret. - Author: Robert Parry
Human Sciences quotes by Robert Parry
#23. Nice and good are different. Being nice involves immediate actions and immediate consequences - you give water to the thirsty and comfort to the afflicted right here, right now. Being good involves living in the world so that you contribute to the welfare of your fellow human beings. - Author: Charles Murray
Human Sciences quotes by Charles Murray
#24. Surely it should be a matter of moral responsibility that we humans, different from other animals mainly by virtue of our more highly developed intellect and, with it, our greater capacity for understanding and compassion, ensure that medical progress slowly detaches its roots from the manure of non-human animal suffering and despair. - Author: Jane Goodall
Human Sciences quotes by Jane Goodall
#25. It is this honest connection behveen two human beings that, in the end, makes what we endured together understandable and meaningful. - Author: Lynn I. Wilson
Human Sciences quotes by Lynn I. Wilson
#26. How very paltry and limited the normal human intellect is, and how little lucidity there is in the human consciousness, may be judged from the fact that, despite the ephemeral brevity of human life, the uncertainty of our existence and the countless enigmas which press upon us from all sides, everyone does not continually and ceaselessly philosophize, but that only the rarest of exceptions do. - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
Human Sciences quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#27. Sophie, what will you do to help Josh,to save him, to bring him back?" Tsagaglalal asked.
"Anything. Everything." Perenelle leaned forward to place both forearms on the table. Her hands were tightly locked together, knuckles white with tension. "And Sophie, what do you think I will do to help my husband?"
"Anything," Sophie said again. "Everything."
"We will do anything-everything-to help those we love. That is what seperates the humani from the Next Generation of the Elders or those who came before them. That is what makes us human.That is why the race thrives; it is why the race will always survive."
"But that type of love requires sacrifice," Tsagaglalal said slowly.
"Sometimes extraordinary sacrifices..."
The old woman's gray eyes suddenly swam with huge tears.
And Sophie had a flickering memory of a woman-younger, so much younger, but with the same high cheekbones and gray eyes of Tsagaglalal-turning away from a tall golden statue. The woman stopped and looked back, and Sophie discovered that the statue's bright gray eyes were alive and were following the woman. Then Tsagaglalal turned and raced down endless glass stairs. She was clutching a book in both hands: the Codex. And her tears dripped onto the metal surface. - Author: Michael Scott
Human Sciences quotes by Michael Scott
#28. When it comes to individual destiny, there is no power greater in the universe then the conviction of the human soul to make a choice. - Author: James Dashner
Human Sciences quotes by James Dashner
#29. If we did not take action to solve this crisis, it could indeed threaten the future of human civilization. That sounds shrill. It sounds hard to accept. I believe it's deadly accurate. But again, we can solve it. - Author: Al Gore
Human Sciences quotes by Al Gore
#30. The Hindus progressed in the subjective sciences. - Author: Swami Vivekananda
Human Sciences quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#31. Do you remember, Meir, that epigram quoted in the name of Rabbi Johanan ben Zaccai: 'There is no truth unless there be a faith on which it may rest'? Ironically enough the only sure principle I have achieved is this which I have known almost all my life. And it is so. For all truths rest ultimately on some act of faith, geometry on axioms, the sciences on the assumptions of the objective existence and orderliness of the world of nature. In every realm one must lay down postulates or he shall have nothing at all. So with morality and religion. Faith and reason are not antagonists. On the contrary, salvation is through the commingling of the two, the former to establish first premises, the latter to purify them of confusion and to draw the fullness of their implications. It is not certainty which one acquires so, only plausibility, but that is the best we can hope for. - Author: Milton Steinberg
Human Sciences quotes by Milton Steinberg
#32. At the heart of western freedom and democracy is the belief that the individual man ... is the touchstone of value, and all society, groups, the state, exist for his benefit. Therefore the enlargement of liberty for individual human beings must be the supreme goal and abiding practice of any western society. - Author: Robert Kennedy
Human Sciences quotes by Robert Kennedy
#33. Over the years, one comes to measure a place, too, not just for the beauty it may give, the balminess of its breezes, the insouciance and relaxation it encourages, the sublime pleasures it offers, but for what it teaches. The way in which it alters our perception of the human. It is not so much that you want to return to indifferent or difficult places, but that you want to not forget. - Author: Barry Lopez
Human Sciences quotes by Barry Lopez
#34. Viewers can't work or play while watching television; they can't read; they can't be out on the streets, falling in love with the wrong people, learning how to quarrel and compromise with other human beings. In short, they are asocial. - Author: Pete Hamill
Human Sciences quotes by Pete Hamill
#35. Here then is the link between freedom as autonomy and Kant's idea of morality. To act freely is not to choose the best means to a given end; it is to choose the end itself, for its own sake - a choice that human beings can make and billiard balls cannot. - Author: Michael J. Sandel
Human Sciences quotes by Michael J. Sandel
#36. Human nature in time is engraved in history. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Human Sciences quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#37. If you are building a thirty-story building and you use worm-eaten wood for the frame, inferior structural supports, and other fourth-rate, low-grade materials, what kind of finished product do you think you will wind up with? No need to answer. So if you're building a human body and the material that will become your blood, bones, skin, organs-indeed, every cell of your body-is inferior and of poor quality, what kind of body do you think you will wind up with? No need to answer. - Author: Harvey Diamond
Human Sciences quotes by Harvey Diamond
#38. The day is not far off when the economic problem will take the back seat where it belongs, and the arena of the heart and the head will be occupied or reoccupied, by our real problems - the problems of life and of human relations, of creation and behavior and religion. - Author: John Maynard Keynes
Human Sciences quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#39. Indeed, all forms of human folly and beastiality touch a very symphathetic chord within our breasts! - Author: J.D. Salinger
Human Sciences quotes by J.D. Salinger
#40. You have been blessed to stand on the shoulders of giants. Make sure that someone stands on yours as well. This is the only way of human progress. - Author: Chris Matakas
Human Sciences quotes by Chris Matakas
#41. Human beings are always going to find interesting ways of making a mess of their lives. It's human nature. - Author: Jack Nicholson
Human Sciences quotes by Jack Nicholson
#42. My thoughts about human happiness, for some peculiar reason, had always been tinged with a certain sadness. - Author: Anton Chekhov
Human Sciences quotes by Anton Chekhov
#43. Thus, Christ making His human divine and taking it into heaven is the central event of all time. It is the miracle of all miracles. The resurrection bursts like a sun on the timeline of history, which means this innermost event shines light on all points in history leading up to it and after it. - Author: Steve Sanchez
Human Sciences quotes by Steve Sanchez
#44. This is my right; it is the right of every human being. I choose not the suffocating anesthetic of the suburbs, but the violent jolt of the Capital, that is my choice. The meanest patient, yes, even the very lowest is allowed some say in the matter of her own prescription. Thereby she defines her humanity. I wish, for your sake, Leonard, I could be happy in this quietness. [pause]But if it is a choice between Richmond and death, I choose death.. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Human Sciences quotes by Virginia Woolf
#45. Worst of all, there is no sign of any relaxation of antisemitism. Logically it has nothing to do with Fascism. But the human raceis imitative rather than logical; and as Fascism spreads antisemitism spreads. - Author: George Bernard Shaw
Human Sciences quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#46. ...human beings have a distorted view of risk. They don't see the whole picture. Our perceptions are twisted by stories in the media, by films, by our own personalities and experiences. So, despite the unlikely odds, we still worry about being raped or murdered. We hear a sound in the night and think of burglars, not mice... It's kind of a protective pessimism: if we worry about the worst happening, it may miss our door. - Author: Ruth Dugdall
Human Sciences quotes by Ruth Dugdall
#47. Secreted and hidden in the heart of the world and in the heart of the human is the light which can illuminate all life, the future and the past. Shall we not search for it? - Author: Mabel Collins
Human Sciences quotes by Mabel Collins
#48. Religion is man's way of accepting life as an inevitable defeat. That it is not an inevitable defeat is a claim that cannot be defended in good faith. One can, of course, disperse one's life over the contingencies of every day, but even then it is only a ceaseless and desperate desire to live, and finally a regret that one has not lived. One can accept life, and accept it, at the same time, as a defeat only if one accepts that there is a sense beyond that which is inherent in human history -- if, in other words, one accepts the order of the sacred. A hypothetical world from which the sacred had been swept away would admit of only two possibilities: vain fantasy that recognizes itself as such, or immediate satisfaction which exhausts itself. It would leave only the choice proposed by Baudelaire, between lovers of prostitutes and lovers of clouds: those who know only the satisfactions of the moment and are therefore contemptible, and those who lose themselves in otiose imaginings , and are therefore contemptible. Everything is contemptible, and there is no more to be said. The conscience liberated from the sacred knows this, even if it conceals it from itself. - Author: Leszek Kołakowski
Human Sciences quotes by Leszek Kołakowski
#49. The more that you are being your ideas, the less human you are. The deeper your realization, being in your heart, the more of your humanness you come into. - Author: John De Ruiter
Human Sciences quotes by John De Ruiter
#50. He was not for that moment a human being, but a frenzied creature possessed by rage, turned into an animal. All that could be seen in him was the urge to hurt, and it was, as it always will be, the most dreadful sight in the world. - Author: Susan Cooper
Human Sciences quotes by Susan Cooper
#51. Every age, every culture, every custom and tradition has its own character, its own weakness and its own strength, it beauties and ugliness; accepts certain sufferings as matters of course, puts up patiently with certain evils. Human life is reduced to real suffering, to hell, only when two ages, two cultures and religions overlap ... Now there are times when a whole generation is caught in this way between two ages, two modes of life, with the consequence that it loses all power to understand itself and has no standard, no security, no simple acquiescence. Naturally, every one does not feel this equally strongly. - Author: Hermann Hesse
Human Sciences quotes by Hermann Hesse
#52. The novel is the fruit of a human illusion. The illusion of the power to understand others. But what do we know of one another? - Author: Milan Kundera
Human Sciences quotes by Milan Kundera
