The authors conceive of the humanities not as fields of study so much as modes of study, believing that every course in a university can appropriately embody the humanistic ideal and can thus inculcate attitudes and habits of approach characteristic of informed and mature persons. This series of essays traces the development of humanistic studies and attitudes at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Originally published in 1945.
