What is 'progress' in the humanities? : as seen from the perspective of literary studies

  • If one thing can be learned from the recent boom in the apparently 'new' field of the 'history of the humanities', it is that, especially in the humanities, the history of an academic discipline is never mere history, because the research questions that inaugurate a discipline continue to subsist at its foundations. Knowledge in the humanities, it seems, develops differently. In many fields, 'progress' is far less linear than in the natural sciences; indeed, research programmes may shuttle back and forth between different epochs, with interpretations of the past continually shedding new light upon the present.
