From the Back Cover:

The Creative Impulse chronologically introduces the arts of Western tradition—painting and sculpture, architecture, theatre, music, dance, literature, and film—within the context of the philosophy, religion, aesthetic theory, economics, and politics that inform them. Up-to-date material encompassing modern artistic movements and achievements—young contemporary realist painters, ethnic and social alternative theatre, and performance art—broadens the scope of coverage. Dennis Sporre provides students of the humanities with a basic understanding of major styles and their historical significance, helping to facilitate a relationship with the arts beyond the classroom. Feature boxes on nonwestern art and culture appropriate to the time period covered by each chapter accompany the text.

New to this edition:
  • Chapter-opening explorations of "The Way Art Works" define and illustrate basic concepts about the arts.
  • Hyperlinks, or URLs, connect with websites for ,additional examples throughout the body of the text.
  • Each chapter closes with a "Cybersources" section for further study of examples and materials concerning the periods discussed in the preceding pages.

Also available as a companion to the text:

The humanities video CD-ROM presents fourteen segments that bring to life basic terms and ideas from the visual arts, architecture, theatre, music, dance, literature, and film. With each clip a listing of key terms and their definitions are included. Students are able to download the terms to their hard drive and create study notes or easy-to-use reference material. There is a website developed exclusively for the CD-ROM, containing web links that are organized by discipline and that offer a wealth of related information. Also included is a "starter kit" for each discipline that provides a general introduction to the make up of the arts genres, why they are studied, and how to study them effectively.
