Abstract

In the volume Arts and Humanities in Progress. A Manifest of Numanities, Dario Martinelli, Director of the International Scientific Semiotics Institute at the Kaunas University of Technology (Lithuania), and already author of important contributions in emerging research fields as Zoosemiotic and Zoomusicology, proposes a programmatic platform aimed at a radical renewal, and a critical refoundation, of Humanities. The neologism "Numanities", which appears in the sub-title of the book and gives name to the new editorial series which it inaugurates, is precisely called to symbolize these new Humanities able to face, with a both a critical and constructive approach, the challenges posed by the social forms, technological developments, and ethical issues of our time, of which the book promotes and hopes the advent.
