Hi,

would you please tell me what's the meaning of [sth.] at its finest? e.g.: 'Humanity at its finest', 'science writing at its finest', etc.

It means 'it's the best possible'. It's often used to describe examples.

eg The world's concern for the rescue of the Chilean miners showed humanity at its finest.

eg This is a wonderful article. It is an example of science writing at its finest.
