The main objective of this article is to account for specific ideas about the place occupied by the Humanities in the context of globalization, and how they have struggled to maintain, so far in the 21st century, a space and a prestige that today seems being questioned by the operational logic of worldwide corporatism. The latter apparently has a method of understanding the world whose discourses create imperatives and meanings that benefit it, and for this purpose business discourse has been incorporated into the agenda of skill-based educational programs, which end up ignoring the importance of traditional institutions and intellectual legacies like the humanistic knowledge. It is necessary to remember that the Humanities had a preponderant place in the history of the modern era, and that we must act so that they continue to be present in the reorganization of the methods of understanding reality.
