In launching PHS, our goal is to stimulate theory, practice, research and reflection on the process of teaching and learning in disciplines that address the question of what it means to be human. In so doing, we cast our net broadly to include not only psychology and the traditional social sciences, but also disciplines that are often considered to be part of the humanities – philosophy, literary studies, religious studies, history and related fields. We embrace the full range of different modes of inquiry, including philosophical reflection and analysis, quantitative and qualitative empirical research, action research, ethnography, hermeneutic and discursive analysis, and other modes of expression and analysis.
