    Arts and humanities are considered as two of the oldest fields of knowledge available to man. The difference between the two is often seen with ambiguity. While art is seen as a more all-inclusive field, humanities, on the other hand, takes into consideration a diverse and oftentimes unrelated set of disciplines from literature to political history.

    The study of humanities dates back to Ancient Greece when its rulers made it basic education for all the citizens. Even the Romans have participated at one point or another when they included in their curriculum arithmetic, music, astronomy and logic, topics which, at the present, are considered disciplines of humanities. However, the views on these disciplines back then were more personal and routine. During the advent of the Renaissance period, these fields have been taken more seriously, turning them into subjects of study rather than practice. It is in this era where literature, painting and history were given the utmost importance. Regardless of their rich history and achievements, the query still remains. What is arts and humanities? Despite that question which ominously hovers within the various academes around the world, there is no denying that such definitive mystery entails man's never-ending quests for intellectual improvement. Although two separate fields of study, art and humanities have long been a part of man's life whether one likes it or not.
