A top-seller since it first published in 1955, Fleming's Arts and Ideas chronologically explores a breadth of humanities topics from antiquity to the present. New author Mary Warner Marien continues the text's tradition of combining outstanding scholarship with high quality art reproductions, while at the same time bringing a new contemporary voice to this classic text. Fleming's Arts and Ideas challenges students to see the links between common purposes, themes, and ideas in painting, sculpture, architecture, literature, music, and philosophy.
