For courses in Introduction to Humanities

Help students broaden their perspectives and enrich their lives through the humanities
The Art of Being Human: The Humanities as a Technique for Living introduces students to the joys of the humanities — those disciplines that reflect the best efforts of human culture through the ages and around the globe. Authors Richard Janaro and Thelma Altshuler’s topical, thematic approach empowers students to think critically about key artforms and themes individually, and to draw significant connections among them. The 11th Edition covers contemporary works — such as comic book blockbuster movies and the new golden age of television drama — in nearly every chapter to help students better understand themselves and the world in which they live.
