Culture and Values: A Survey of the Western Humanities, Volume 2
This book has an ambitious aim. It surveys the major cultural achievements of Western civilization from the 15th century Renaissance in Italy down to the present day. At the outset, we feel we should set forth our basic philosophy, our orientations, and our hopes. We feel we owe this statement both to the instructure and, even more, to the students.
