What connects humanistic values and interdisciplinary orientation in culture?

Human values do not simply hover in the air; they are shaped by each culture's unique content, which allows them to exist. Although humanistic values are universal, their realization depends on a connection with at least one specific cultural orientation. This is why there is a link between knowledge and value education.


Humanism is an outlook that relates to various educational methods. If we believe in the existence of truth but doubt its accuracy, then continuous dialogue becomes necessary to uncover it. And this kind of dialogue is developed as a skill within humanistic education.

It's not by chance that we study texts like the Bible or citizenship literature, and more. These are different aspects of human creations, just as physics and biology represent our discoveries about nature. Therefore, natural sciences also fall under the umbrella of humanistic studies.

Is it appropriate to teach these subjects separately? Humanistic education places the individual at its core and aims for comprehensiveness - that is, understanding the diversity of human creations. This connection between humanistic education and interdisciplinary teaching emphasizes questioning as a way to balance disciplinary knowledge with interdisciplinary knowledge.
