The main purpose of the programme » Humanities and the Sense of Humanity from Historical and Contemporary Viewpoints« is to define the situation of humanistic knowledge in the scope of development and research perspectives in the knowledge society, considering the historical and actual  importance of humanistics. Researches on single humanistic fields must therefore in accordance be formed upon the historical and contemporary viewpoints and interwined between disciplinary and methodological accessions. What especially stands out, regarding the specificity of Slovenian area, are questions, linked to the role of the language in humanistics and the meaning of humanistics, art and culture at forming and developing of historical and social identities. These proceedings cannot be developed without the European context, in which Slovenian culture is historically and presently engraved. A particular humanistic challenge in Slovenia, to which a programme »Humanities and the Sense of Humanity from Historical and Contemporary Viewpoints«, is the reflection on European intercultural horizont.  On this basis it is also necessary to critically observe the social development on the local and global level just as to promote the humanistic consciousness in society, in particular what concerns the education, culture, science and media.  In this context the activities of programme group, linked to the publishing of humanistic works, organizing of symposiums and to the development of e-archive, that should serve the purpose the promotion of humanistic literature, will be taking place.
Significance for science
Scientific significance of the proposed research programme is primarily being indicated with: -0 direct linking of research on humanistic field with cultural, publishing and pedagogical activities; -1 acquaintance of interdisciplinary and interinstitutional collaborations on the humanistic field, which has not been adequately recognized in Slovenia  and  Europe so far; -2 contents linking with humanistic institutions among international framework, what will enable quality rise and new research possibilities on the humanistic field;-the involvement of researchers from other humanistic institutions in Slovenia just as collaborations with researchers from other countries (stated on the list of the collaborating institutions) is of great importance for the development of  humanistics in gene -3 proceedings on the main questions of humanity in historical and contemporary views, what is supposed to be a linking basis within the international research framework; especially it should emphasize proceedings on historical and cultural identities of our time, concerning Slovenian and European humanistic heritage and globalization processes of today; -4 enforcement of innovative methodological viewpoints on the single humanistic fields and in the scope of interdisciplinary humanistic researches; -5 preparing the critical editions and digalization of the main humanistic works; preparation of such works requests collaborations of all humanistic sciences; -6 publishing of high quality humanistic works, translations and scientific journals on the humanistic field.
Significance for the country
Undoubtedly it is an open question for Europe today, whether it should base its development solely on economic growing or the standard of successfulness should be set in the way, that beside the economy also capture s all the other relevant social factors. A decision on this subject has undoubtedly got long-term consequences mot only for the field of sociality, culture, ecology etc., but it also declares the further development of Slovenian education and research sistem on all levels.    In order to suitably articulate these development, the articulation surroundings need to be assured, what could be seen as the main contribution of culture.  What in the information-communication system defines the »knowledge society«, includes essentially such a cultural and education mediation. We are dealing with a different paradigm of knowledge, which is so to speak simultaneously conceptualizing. In this we can become aware of the main endeavor of humanistic studies today, which does not that much stand on the natural sciences side, but in knowledge relation to the whole complex of informational production of knowledge, on the basis of what concerns and strives us as »sense«, which for itself needs »articulation«. If we compare the situation of humanistics in Slovenia to the situation in other European countries, it can be shown that there are fairly large differences, which, on the one hand, depend on tradition, and on the other a series of systematic factors of managing the educational, cultural, scientific and economic sector. It can be found that in Slovenia we tend to emphasize its substantial extension, while less attention is paid to what systematically affects its condition, and also the subjective social influence of humanistics
