9780070406391: The humanities through the arts

This humanities text takes a topical, exploratory approach, emphasizing participation and involvement as a means to a more complete understanding of the arts. Covering film, dance, photography, painting, sculpture, architecture, literature, and music, "Humanities through the arts" focuses on how the humanities and the arts relate to one another and to human values in general. It is used in interdisciplinary undergraduate courses offered in the departments of humanities, philosophy, English, and education. Special features include: an aesthetic theory which underlies the text giving students an uncomplicated basis for understanding and appreciating the arts; "Perception Keys" which draw on students' critical thinking abilities and encourage them to challenge arguments presented in the text; a careful discussion of critical method showing there is something more than just an impressionistic response to art.
