Please help me understand why the use of "human as" is wrong in the following sentence: "the philosophers emphasized the study of human as fundamental to their doctrine"

  • Consider this: Botany is the study of plant. No. Botany is the study of plants. – user98746 Jul 25 '19 at 15:06

The Philosophers aren't just emphasizing the studying one human, they are emphasizing the study of all humans. Since they are emphasizing the studying more than one thing the thing is plural.
