ABSTRACT

The researcher presents humanities that understands, interprets, and leads technology as a new methodology that will replace digital humanities. This challenging humanities research methodology, which can be conceptualized as “Humanities engineering,” declares the beginning of the 3.0 humanities era. If traditional humanities was humanities 1.0, digital humanities, which actively attempted to recruit IT as a research methodology is 2.0, and humanities engineering that aims to view humans and society from a deeper and broader viewpoint than technology by taking the help of technology is humanities 3.0. This process is organized in the following table . The ancient Greeks did not distinguish between art and technology. They used and applied the term “technology”to art and practice, that is, piece and stonemason. However, in this era, humanities has reached the highest level of achievement. As technology, which was a mere shadow of the arts so far, created a new form called information that is comparable to art, the meaning of the human, who is the creator of art, user of technology, consumer of information, and producer of knowledge, became more important. Now, humanities should interpret not only art but also technology. If the function of interpreting symbols has not been abandoned, the symbol of technology should also be the subject of humanities research. Art and technology are fraternal twins. Although both use tools, they are different in terms of form, content, function, efficiency, value, and orientation. So far, humanities only considered romance, emotion, and the aesthetic world as a subject of interpretation by having art as the target text. However, humanities engineering determines practice, efficiency, and convenience from the human perspective. The core of humanities engineering is to interpret technology as humanities. The reason this is important is that technology mimics humans and all technology is “expansion of humans” as pointed out by McLuhan. Viewing technology from the human perspective will be another way of thinking and reflecting on ourselves.
