Big Picture

The Heart of the Matter, a film by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, is a discussion on the need for support of the humanities.

"The Heart of the Matter, a Report of the American Academy's Commission on the Humanities and Social Sciences, is intended to advance a dialogue on the importance of the humanities and social sciences to the future of our nation. . . .

The Heart of the Matter identifies three overarching goals: 1) to educate Americans in the knowledge, skills, and understanding they will need to thrive in a twenty-first-century democracy; 2) to foster a society that is innovative, competitive, and strong; and 3) to equip the nation for leadership in an interconnected world. These goals cannot be achieved by science alone."
