ABSTRACT
"Human Studies," was the idea and invention of George Psathas, in the hard to imagine case that there is a reader who does not know that George is followed by Psathas. The journal has remained his concern since its inception. Through a series of spirited discussions we made important and consequential decisions that the journal would be influenced in a more general way by phenomenology as an overall orientation rather than a specialty, that ethnomethodology would be paid special attention to, and that the standards for scholarship would be high. As "Human Studies," explores this view of human affairs, it makes a very important contribution. "Human Studies," today pursues its inquiry into the meaning of human and studies and it has the heartiest wishes for the further continuation and growth of this inquiry.
