Summary: This book focuses on the historical component of the Humanities course, and on intellectual history in particular. It pays close attention to the lives of individuals, highlighting the human aspect of great artists and thinkers; an abundance of biographical information allows students to see these figures as real people with concrete motivations for creating great historical works. The text contains a number of pedagogical features, which are especially helpful for
students who have no background in humanities. Comparative timelines begin each part of the book, allowing students to visualize and compare historic events in four topic areas: politics and economy, art and architecture, literature and music, and philosophy and religion. Each chapter contains key terms, a glossary, and a chapter-ending summary.
