Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0205672302, Paperback)

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. Pearson Prentice Hall is proud to offer Discovering the Humanities–the new brief version of The Humanities: Culture, Continuity, and Change adapted by author Henry Sayre himself. Discovering the Humanities continues to help students see the big picture and make important connections through Henry Sayre’s captivating narrative that has made the comprehensive text successful at schools across the nation.


Henry Sayre took the introduction to the humanities course as a sophomore and was inspired to devote his life to the study of the humanities.  He has always wanted to write a book that passes along the important and compelling stories of the humanities. Henry believes that students learn best by remembering stories, not by memorizing facts.  What makes Discovering the Humanities special is that it tells the stories and captures the voices that have shaped and influenced human thinking and creativity.
