Overview

MindTap® Art & Humanities for Cunningham/Reich/Fichner-Rathus' Culture and Values: A Survey of the Humanities, Volume I, 8th Edition is the digital learning solution that helps instructors engage and transform today's students into critical thinkers. Through paths of dynamic assignments and applications that you can personalize, real-time course analytics, and an accessible reader, MindTap helps you turn cookie cutter into cutting edge, apathy into engagement, and memorizers into higher-level thinkers. Designed for the one- or two-semester general humanities course at the freshman and sophomore level, MindTap for Culture and Values introduces students to art, music, philosophy, and literature, from the beginnings of world civilization to today. New co-author Lois Fichner-Rathus adds a unique conversational style and features that encourage critical thinking.
