Summary: For a one or two-quarter/semester survey course.
This innovative two-volume primary source reader is designed to give students an opportunity to evaluate and interact--through both discussion and writing--with some of the greatest ideas and creative expressions of humanity. Chronological in format--with individual units focused on time periods, specific events, and historical questions, it is internally organized around six major themes--The Institution and...show more the Individual; Social and Spiritual Values; The Power Structure; Revolution and Transition; The Varieties of Truth; and Women in History and the Humanities. Throughout the volumes, students are confronted with basic questions regarding historical development, human nature, moral action, and practical necessity.
Chronological format with 7 self-contained chapters in each volume.
Makes the text easy to incorporate into a traditional university humanities curriculum.
Unique and diverse and selection of primary sources--Features a more extensive and diverse selection of primary sources than other available readers. Includes not only the traditional primary documents essential to the study of the Humanities, but also the more unusual which are not found in similar texts.
Such sources create focused and lively discussions.
Unique focus on interrelationships--Promotes thoughtful comparisons linking common problems, events, artistic movements (in art, music, literature, poetry, dance), or historical themes within the same time period and across chronological divisions.
Helps students understand the sweep and integrative nature of the Humanities.
Emphasis on cultural interaction--Continually asks: How have the diverse cultures of the West been linked by political systems, economic contact, social and religious movements, philosophy, art, literature, and such variables as disease and war? In what ways has Western Civilization over the centuries struggled with similar challenges and themes that have contributed to cultural transition?
Students see the evolving nature of all cultures.
Relevant problem-orientation--Inspires controversy and discussion which may well be based on topics in the past, but which have real application and relevancy for the contemporary world.
Confronts students with questions and problems that human beings have struggled with for centuries--and that still have meaning for their own lives in today's world.
