KIRKUS REVIEW

For a college audience Mr. Graeffe reviews the possibilities and problems involved in the venture to integrate the humanities courses in colleges and universities. The author has done extensive work in this field, principally at Stephens College and the University of Florida, and his discussion of methods, stages and techniques of integration are the result of intensive study and experiment. In the last chapter specific projects and plans are treated in detail. Assuming from the nature of the aims and potentialities of the humanities courses that intelligent integration with an eye to evolving the greatest benefit to the student's successful adjustment to his present social and civic environment is desirable, the author suggests a wide variety of methods in which the teacher is the ""catalyst"" who allows the work itself to be the ""real teacher"". Stimulating and essential for its audience.
