See Context and Make Connections across the Humanities

Discovering the Humanities helps students see context and make connections across the humanities by tying together the entire cultural experience through a narrative storytelling approach. Written around Henry Sayre's belief that students learn best by remembering stories rather than memorizing facts, it captures the voices that have shaped and influenced human thinking and creativity throughout our history.

With a stronger focus on critical thinking, and coupled with the new MyArtsLab to personalize learning for each student, the second edition enables students to deepen their understanding of how cultures influence one another. It also shows how ideas are exchanged and evolve over time, and how this collective process has led us to where we stand today.

Personalize Learning - The new MyArtsLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructors achieve their goals.

Engage Students - Henry Sayre engages students like no other with his storytelling approach and the MyArtsLab Challenge which guides students through the ages as they master the study of Humanities.

"An extraordinary text with exquisite graphics and a concise and accurate, text. It engages the student in many areas of the Humanities and opens the door for further exploration." -Paul Beaudoin, Fitchburg State University

"A cohesive introduction to the subject, with great images and information on related issues."- Katherine Harrell , South Florida Community College

" Intelligently written. I like the way connections are made between periods and between cultures.... I've liked using it. The layout is beautiful. I like the large illustrations and the opening quotes, the definition of terms, the excellent reproductions, the use of primary sources and the thoughtful approach. "-Terre Burton , Dixie State College of Utah

"The text includes the vast majority of major periods, styles, and representative figures. I am especially pleased with its inclusion of non-Western material, which is critical in today's global environment. In addition, the textbook is beautifully illustrated and well-written." - Frederick Smith , Florida Gateway College

"Sayre's "Discovering the Humanities" is a highly readable text that introduces students to the pleasures of the field. His insightful discussions of individual works in the visual arts and literature show students how the same ideas are manifested in different genres in a given time period as well as how those ideas continue to influence us today. The text is ideal for an introductory level humanities course." - Sandi Landis , St. Johns River Community College
