This classic thematic anthology, long hailed for its exceptionally rich collection of essays, memoirs, stories, poems, and plays, offers a wide array of diverse authors, fascinating topics, and academic disciplines including art, cultural studies, education, psychology, philosophy, politics, science, technology, and environmental studies. Readings range from the classical-Plato's Crito-to the contemporary-Tony Kushner, Adam Gopnick, and Edwige Danticat. Brief, flexible apparatus includes an introduction to each theme and helpful headnotes, discussion questions, and writing assignments for each selection. A truly distinguishing feature of The Conscious Reader is its cutting-edge collection of classic and contemporary fine art and photographs, selected by visual artist Christian Matuschek, and accompanied by writing prompts designed to provoke discussion and analysis.
