Question description

this is what need to be do please read I need it by Friday

2.  Skim through the Humanities Time Line document as you read your assigned textbook reading for the week. Identify the predominant historic figures, the "giants of the Humanities", as you read.

3.  Add the figure to the timeline. In the third column identify the figure with boldface and an asterisk (*). In many cases they may already be labeled on the timeline.

4.  For each person you identify write in a brief personal annotation. Your note should describe the message or style of the giant's contribution to the Humanities. You will also want to insert a brief "journal note" in which you share your impression of the giant.

Example entry:

* Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)
German philosopher who wrote The Birth of Tragedy from the Spirit of Music and Thus Spoke Zarathustra. He identified two responses to live events: Apollonian responses were dominated by reason and analysis and control. Dionysian responses were dominated by emotion and intuition and freedom. I like this comparison and I feel I view life from a more Apollonian viewpoint. I would like to do more reading on FN's critique of secularism ("God is dead" theology] and his notion of the "Superman."

5.  Add at least three entries and/or notations to your Time Line each week (for a total of 30 entries). Feel free to add more than three per week.

Years and Centuries A.D.

Note that the date (e.g. 487 A.D.) is always less than the number of the century (The year 487 is in the Fifth Century). This is because the first 100 years of a century starts with year 0, not year 100.

Examples:

·  01-99 is the First Century and all of the dates are before 100: Year 12, year 67, etc.

·  100-200 is the Second Century and the dates are in the 100's: Year 110, Year 188.

·  1900-1999 is the Twentieth Century and all of the dates are in the 1900s: 1995, etc.
