Critical Skepticism: Humanities

Bias in the Humanities

     Research in the humanities is very different from the empirical research that is done in the sciences, and more prone to interpretation.  In my research most of the influence i have seen has been ideological. Similiar to the think tanks that influence research into climate change, there are think tanks that influence research into the humanities. 

There are groups that promote different views of history than generally accepted views.  Sometimes these views find their ways into school textbooks.
