The study of civilizations is a field unevenly divided between humanists and social scientists. The former tend to look to the past of a civilization, usually to its classic period, the latter look to its present. The humanists interview texts monuments and paintings, the social scientists interview people. The humanists see the civilization through the works of its most reflective and creative minds, the social scientists characteristically attend to what is done and thought by the many plain people.
