Customer Reviews

The Humanistic Tradition  July 28, 2011
by


As with many history books, the writer's presuppositions are reflected in their writing. Fiero follows this trend, allowing her feministic presuppositions to interpret history. While this is not so evident in volumes 4 and 5, in volume 6 (a review of modern times), this view is highly stated. This series (including the first 3 volumes) is a wonderful review of history, allowing the reader to see into various cultures throughout history.






The Humanistic Tradition, Book 4: Faith, Reason, and Power in the Early Modern World: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
