Summary

Chronologically organized,The Western Humanitiespresents the cultural achievements of western civilization--art and architecture, music, history, literature, philosophy, theater, film and the other arts--within their historical context. By examining the historical and material conditions that influenced the form and content of the arts and humanities, the authors provide students with a clear framework, a deeper understanding of the meaning of cultural works, and a broader basis for analyzing and appreciating the cultural achievements of the West. Specifcally designed to accompanyThe Western Humanities,Readings in the Western Humanitiesoffers students selections from the West's literary and philosophical heritage, helping them establish vital intellectual links to the achievements of the continually evolving Western tradition. Each reading is preceded by an introduction providing information about the author and historical context for the document.
