Summary

"The Humanities Through the Arts is intended for introductory-level, interdisciplinary courses offered across the curriculum in the humanities, philosophy, art, English, music, and education departments.

Arranged topically by art form - from painting, sculpture, photography, and architecture to literature, music, theater, film, and dance - this beautifully illustrated text helps students learn how to actively engage a work of art.

The Fifth Edition is the most extensive revision in the history of this title, yet it retains the popular focus on the arts as an expression of cultural and personal values.
