This book launches the first comparative history of the humanities from antiquity till today. Rens Bod shows how humanities researchers investigated their material (language, music, art, literature and the past) and the kind of theoretical principles and empirical patterns they found. The book also discusses, from a global perspective (China, India, Arabic world, Europe and Africa), the immense impact the humanities have had on society.

The book presentation will consist of three mini talks by Rens Bod, Joep Leerssen and Floris Cohen, and will be followed by drinks.
