  • Protagoras,Greek philosopher ,5th century BC - "Man is the measure of all things."With this seemingly innocuous statement,Protagoras bitchslaps the theologians -Humanity is prior to god - man makes god,not the other way around.The humanities flow from this insight.Perhaps a more practical answer;not a definition,since it's negative - the method isn't emperical,but rather critical;Science and social science are excluded
