For two semester/quarter courses on Introduction to the Humanities or Cultural Studies.
The Humanities by Henry M. Sayre helps students see context and make connections across the humanities by tying together the entire cultural experience through a narrative storytelling approach.
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 The Humanities special is that it tells the stories and captures the voices that have shaped and influenced human thinking and creativity.
