Discovering the Humanities helps you see context and make connections across the humanities. Author Henry Sayre leads you on a journey through countless “ah-ha” moments as you piece together the cultural history of the world. Sayre deftly conveys multifaceted cultural experiences via a resonant storytelling approach.
The 4th Edition better tells the story of the humanities as a global discipline via new scholarship and images. The text's coverage of contemporary art has been thoroughly reconceived to address key issues such as postcolonialism and the global marketplace. Expanded coverage of the arts beyond the West includes discussions of the Silk Road and early Buddhist and Hindu art and architecture.
