1. The profile of humanistica 21 journal
The scientific journal humanistica 21 publishes scientific articles (not published anywhere else) in the following languages: English, German, Polish and Russian. The articles should present original and unique information concerning research in modern humanities.
Humanistica 21 is dedicated to modern humanities with their new horizons and challenges. The individual volumes are guided by the reflection that, on the threshold of the 21st century, humanities are not only a collective term for various disciplines. Their subject is human existence in its various manifestations. Humanities can undertake a debate on who we are and they can make us aware of the relativity of what we do with the world, of our presence in culture, language, actions and rules of action. They can help us realize our presence in aspirations, ideas, rituals and symbols.
We live in an age that seems to be characterized by unlimited openness to new cultures, ways of thinking, perceiving, communicating, creating and expressing reality. The boundaries that determined the identity of individuals and cultures as well as the methodology for their description are blurring. This experience destroys the existing patterns of understanding and describing the world around us. It all happens in the world of the globalized economic system, migratory and trans-cultural movements and, on the other hand, in the world accompanied by the tendency to build local awareness, individual and collective memory, forcing the rebuilding of human identity and subjectivity. In a multidimensional, changing reality, it is difficult to establish common research paradigms and the correspondence between theories. We assume that the most interesting cognitive effects are produced when we use various methodological and theoretical perspectives as well as interdisciplinary research areas, which appear together with new challenges as a result of growing dynamics of the modern world. It also appears that that modern humanities have parted ways with the philosophical thought proclaiming continued progress and continued increase in knowledge. The significance of the humanities of the 21st century lies in the constant questioning of who we are in a post-modern, globalized world in which everything has become problematic. There are no definite answers to these questions. Modern humanities remind us, however, that mankind cannot stop searching for purpose, even when it is extremely hard to define
