BOOK EXCERPT:

Chronologically organized, The Western Humanities presents the cultural achievements of western civilization--art and architecture, music, history, literature, philosophy, theater, film and the other arts--within their historical context. By examining the historical and material conditions that influenced the form and content of the arts and humanities, the authors provide students with a clear framework, a deeper understanding of the meaning of cultural works, and a broader basis for analyzing and appreciating the cultural achievements of the West. Hundreds of illustrations bring the arts and humanities to life, while extensive pedagogy consistently asks students to think about, interpret, and apply the information throughout the text and at the end of each chapter.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book has an ambitious aim. It surveys the major cultural achievements of Western civilization from the 15th century Renaissance in Italy down to the present day. At the outset, we feel we should set forth our basic philosophy, our orientations, and our hopes. We feel we owe this statement both to the instructure and, even more, to the students.
