Recently, an alum wrote and reflected on the value of her education in the humanities: "Humanistic inquiry has the power to nourish the elasticity of the individual and social mind, as it facilitates our capacity to develop out of ourselves in our own way—to transform and incorporate into ourselves what is past and foreign to heal wounds, replace what has been lost, recreate broken molds. It liberates us from the confines of our individuality and, through the imaginative experience of another’s musings, humor, or deep pangs of the heart, it helps us cultivate a new sense of vision, as we begin to perceive, through the smallness of our existence, a universality of the human condition." — Lina Feuerstein '12
