Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Art of Being Human introduces readers to the ways in which the humanities can broaden their perspective, enhance their ability to think critically and creatively, and enrich their lives. This highly-respected book has been lauded for its scope of topics, accessibility, and lucid writing style. Chapter topics include myth, literature, art, music, television, cinema, and the theater. Also discussed are provocative issues in the humanities - religion, morality, happiness, death, freedom, and controversies in the arts. The thematic organization of the book allows readers to concentrate on one artistic mode at a time. More than 160 black and white photos and two eight-page full-color photo inserts give readers a visual appreciation of the arts. For those interested in the appreciation of the humanities.
