Believing that people learn best by remembering stories rather than memorizing facts, Sayre weaves a compelling narrative of multifaceted cultural experiences that will resonate with students — throughout the course and beyond. By showing how cultures influence one another, and how ideas are exchanged and evolve over time, Discovering the Humanities helps students understand the cultural interplay that has shaped human thinking and creativity throughout our history.

Also available with MyArtsLab®
MyArtsLab for the Introduction to Humanities course extends learning online, engaging students and improving results. Media resources with assignments bring concepts to life, and offer students opportunities to practice applying what they’ve learned.

Discovering the Humanities, Third Edition is also available via REVEL™, an immersive learning experience designed for the way today's students read, think, and learn.
