The humanities have the practical function of giving students something they wouldn't otherwise have. The humanities classroom is a space where they can take a step back from their scientific work and learn to think about the world in a different way."

The unique intellectual freedom of Caltech has inspired me to transform my research completely.  I know many of my colleagues might say the same!"

Warren Brown
  • Professor of History

Warren C. Brown

In my classes, students learn the craft of the medieval historian: to read closely the often difficult primary sources from medieval Europe; push past but also take into account their perspectives, assumptions, and biases, as much as possible; and to assemble what they have learned into persuasive written arguments."
