Altshuler There is an Art to Being Human.The Art of Being Human, Ninth Edition, introduces you to the ways in which the humanities can broaden your perspective, help you think creatively and critically, and enhance your life every single day. Praised for its unique topical organization and captivating writing style, this book provides an exceptional balance between coverage of traditional masterpieces and examples from today's global culture. The Art of Being Human, Ninth Edition, will help you move beyond a mere appreciation of the arts and truly embrace "the humanities as a technique for living."Why You Need This Book! A new chapter on critical thinking will help you develop the skills you need to understand, evaluate, and appreciate the arts, and to understand the importance of the arts in the context of daily life. Updated examples throughout provide more coverage of contemporary works than any other text available, offering a bridge between the arts of today and the great works of the past. Over 60 new visuals offer images not only of well-known classics, but also of forgotten masterpieces and the work of emerging artists. An extended discussion of architecture ties this important art to the other humanities. And as always, The Art of Being Human includes a wealth of examples by non-Western, minority, and women artists-and demonstrates the worldwide reach and universal appeal of the arts.Visit us at www.pearsonhighered.comJanaro, Richard is the author of 'The Art of Being Human', published 2008 under ISBN 9780205605422 and ISBN 0205605427.
