Reading, Writing, and the Humanities
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1991 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 798 pages
Reading, Writing, and the Humanities is organized around eight classic, enduring thems and features extensive reading and writing for students. In selecting philosophy, history, and literature as the primary categories for grouping the readings, this text reatined this early meaning of humanitries as consisting of subjects whose emphasis is mainly human-centered. Our chapter titles are variations on some profound and timeless questions that writers and thinkers in the humanities have grappled with for centuries, while the subtitles declare the underlying issue that is the featured theme. Reading, Writing and the Humanities will stir awake the analytical and critical minds of students.
