Research: Arts and Humanities Way

Rolando M. Gripaldo

Discipline: Education



This paper argues that research in the arts and humanities (AH) should not be marginalized in the academe, as has generally been the situation, but should equally be given emphasis together with those researches in the social sciences. All the more they should be equally funded because they generally require a smaller outlay compared to those in the natural and social sciences. Moreover, outputs in AH qualitative researches can also be comparatively significant epistemologically, culturally, and historically.
