Book Title: The Human Experience: From Human Being to Human Doing

Subtitle: An Introduction to the Humanities

Author: Claire Adams

Book Description: This multimedia reader examines how people use a humanities lens to make sense of what they experience, as well as share their experiences with the rest of the world. The information is presented using a pedagogical approach called reverse teaching, which introduces artifacts in their historical, social, political, personal, and other contexts. Along with the narrative, questions for creative and critical thinking prompt the reader to practice self-exploration.
