About the Author

Harvard-educated Richard Paul Janaro has authored or coauthored five college-level texts, including The Art of Being Human, with Thelma Altshuler; Responses to Drama (also with Ms. Altshuler); Human Worth (with Darwin Gearhart); Philosophy: Something to Believe In; and Identity through Prose. He is also a playwright whose works include Virginia Woolf: The Last Day, commissioned by actress Karen Libman, and Unwavering Light (Einstein in 1905), commissioned by Grand Valley State University and shown before a gathering of physicists from throughout the state of Michigan in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the theory of relativity. Professor Janaro won an Emmy for educational programming for “The Humanities: What They Are and What They Do.”  He is a co-founder and former Dean of Theater Arts at the New World School of the Arts, a performing arts high school in the Miami-Dade public school district.

Educated at the University of Miami and the University of California/Berkeley in history and literature, Thelma C. Altshuler taught literature and the Humanities at the University of Miami from 1953 to 1962, and at Miami-Dade College, from which she retired as Professor Emerita in 1998. At the University of Miami, Professor Altshuler helped organize a required undergraduate interdisciplinary course in Art, Music, Religion, Drama, and Philosophy. At Miami-Dade College, she taught the Humanities in a variety of differently structured courses and occupied the first Bonnie McCabe Endowed Teaching chair in the Humanities in 1992. Professor Altshuler is the author of multiple textbooks, all of which encourage critical thinking and respect for the way the past impinges on the present.
