I thought this book was great and I learned a lot about art and the humanities that I haven't known about. This text covers all area of art such as music, myth and origins, literature, art, cinema religion, freedom, happiness and so much more. This book was more effective than I thought it was going to be.read more
There is so much I learned and so many topics that I couldn't just pin point one. My favorite topic was morality. Freedom would com in next. I never used my critical thinking skills when it came to seeing that I may be free be that there is a consequence of being free and I am held in root by having to work to pay for everything so in other words freedom only goes so far.
This book is similar in to others I have read. But more real-life experiences and short biographies may help students put the themes into their own perspective.read more
I cannot think of anything I would change, except more personal stories. I think this would aid in the critical thinking and help students understand how being human and relating to the arts still applies today.
This book covered the wide subject of Humanities, from art to religion.read more
It covered a vast range of information and provided a great overview of the material needed to gain a basic understanding of the Humanities.
This book was easy to follow and has nice pictures in it. Having the key words defined right in the book was very helpful.read more
This book is better and easier to follow then many of the books I have had to use. It made taking the course better than it could have been with a lesser book.
