The title of this course is Giants of the Arts so please consider the following statement of our textbook authors, Richard Janaro and Thelma Altshuler. The humanities give us stories to inspire our imagination, ideas to stimulate our intellect, musical sounds to excite our passions, and the knowledge that we can respond to the creativity and thoughts of others (Janaro and Altshuler 1:1). What was your initial reaction to this statement? Did your point of view change after our studies? If so, why? Post to the discussion forum your response to the question. Then read the postings submitted by your classmates and reply to at least two other students.
