The Forum for History of Human Science is a voluntary association of individuals interested in furthering scholarship in the history of human science.

It was established to promote research, education, and scholarship in the history of human science; to provide a forum for discussion; and to foster interest in the history of human science among scholars, scientists, students, and the public.

The Forum subscribes to a broad definition of human science that encompasses such disciplines as anthropology, economics, geography, history, linguistics, political science, psychiatry, psychology, sociology, and statistics, as well as aspects of the biological and physical sciences, medicine, education, law, and philosophy.

The Forum is an Interest Group formally affiliated with the History of Science Society (HSS), and it operates according to the provisions of the HSS By-laws. (Note, however, that members of FHHS are not required to be members of HSS.) FHHS is also one of three organizations currently affiliated with the Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences, with representatives serving on its editorial board.
