For courses in Introduction to the Humanities

See context and make connections across the humanities
Discovering the Humanities leads students on a journey through countless “ah-ha” moments as they piece together the cultural history of the world. Believing that students learn best by remembering stories rather than memorizing facts, author Henry Sayre deftly conveys multifaceted cultural experiences via a storytelling approach that students will remember — during the course and beyond. Revised to better tell the story of the humanities as a global discipline, the 4th Edition includes new scholarship and images, and offers an updated survey of contemporary art.

Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.

NOTE: This Revel Combo Access pack includes a Revel access code plus a loose-leaf print reference (delivered by mail) to complement your Revel experience. In addition to this access code, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.
