Aims and Scope
In the 1930s and 1940s, the term “humanism” was commonly used by journalists and became a keyword in contemporary crisis discourse. Taking literary, philosophical, sociological, and legal historical perspectives, the essays in this volume reconstruct the varied notions of a new humanism traversing these two decades. They also shed light on contemporary critiques of humanism.
