The Editors

At Humane Pursuits, we want to be the explorers of an ancient originality, rediscovering the work of being human in 21st century America. Our approach is to thread the yearnings of our generation through the most compelling ideas of civilization, remembering our late and limited place in the flow of those ideas. On this site, we bring together the most imaginative minds of our time with the wisest minds of all time; exploring community, art, faith, and other topics. In this continuous tapestry, we seek—in a very real, concrete sense—how to live lives and build communities in modern America that reflect the pursuits that make life worth living…humane pursuits.
