It highlights the major styles of arts and letters as they crystallized in centers of civilization at moments of high cultural achievement, such as 5th-century . Athens and Renaissance Florence. The underlying concept of Arts & Ideas is the belief that deeper human understanding can be acquired by studying the creative revelations of artists, poets, philosophers, and composers, from our own time and from the past. flAVe I AVID lUYiNO THIS U560.

A musical prodigy, of sorts, Fleming studied piano under Olga Steeb during his adolescent years before continuing his musical studies at Pomona Junior College from 1927 to 1928 Arts and Ideas.

William Fleming became an associate professor of Fine Arts at Syracuse University in 1945. It was during this time that William Fleming authored ARTS and IDEAS. Feeling that the Humanities program at SU did not sufficiently serve the needs of a growing Fine Arts program, Fleming founded the Department of Fine Arts in 1947 and became its first chairman. He held this position until 1969. First published in 1955, this work served as the synthesis of music and art that Fleming had been so desperately seeking.

This is the ultimate book to use as a general guide to understanding the humanities. I feel very lucky to have found a copy (Thanks, Amazon!) of the required book I used in high school Humanities class and then again at the University of Florida two years later. I graduated from high school in 1966, but "folks in the know" say that this is still the definitive book. I lost mine several years ago when I loaned it to someone (Bad choice) and missed having it as a reference. To me, it's a treasure!

This book, in all of its editions, is one of the most spectacular and successful efforts to put together the arts, philosophy, science, politics, and zeitgeist of each era of human history. In an age where real education is hard to find, where our schools drill and kill our children's curiosity, the existence of this book on anyone's bookshelf, the exploration of a book like this, would go a long way to awakening a wide and deep understanding of the ages of humankind.

This was text for an art history class, but contained all sorts of history that helped me in several other classes.

Toured Europe recently and the very knowledgeable guide told me this book was the source of that knowledge, half way into the first chapter and I realise that not only is this text thought provoking but is the first text I've ever read like a novel. Would have been great to read it before my tour, but I didn't know about it then. It is a substantial b will book and will take some time to read and digest. I have just read about the Parthenon and the text was like listening to the local guide we had, a great text covering Europe.

The best book of Western culture and arts.
My university used the hardback COLOR version of this incredible textbook back in 1968. I lost my much-loved copy when my house burned down in 2010. I was excited to find this book again. It is a comprehensive survey of man's accomplishments in visual and auditory arts from the dawn of recorded history. Packed with COLOR reproductions of famed paintings, sculpture, textiles, all visual art made by famous people. Additionally, it summarized philosophical and religious concepts through the ages, and discussed musical accomplishments as well. Truly a treasured documentary of the cultural accomplishments of mankind. It is an amazing book that I was ecstatic to be able to re-add to my library. Can you imagine my shock and disappointment to open the book to find all of this beautiful art in BLACK AND WHITE?! As far as I am concerned, it is a travesty to have dared to print "Arts and Ideas" without the color pictures. I already got stiffed with another black and white copy once before, so I was alert in the book description for such a warning. Now I have two worthless copies. I feel I was snookered.
