Overview

Help students broaden their perspectives and enrich their lives through the humanities
REVEL™ for 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. REVEL for the Eleventh 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.

REVEL is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, REVEL replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, REVEL is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience – for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.

NOTE: REVEL is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone REVEL access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use REVEL.
