« back to classes page
The relationship between the enduring qualities of great written works and the enlivening activity of discussing them is the cornerstone of Readings in Western Culture. This semester we will be using the anthology “The Great Books Reading & Discussion First Series,” which is composed of classics that make up the core of the Western intellectual tradition. This series provides a way of understanding our society and ourselves through selections that contain the great ideas that have shaped our thinking. Authors include Chekhov, Aristotle, Conrad, Freud, Darwin, Tocqueville, Sophocles & others. The series is available in paperback through the Great Books Foundation ( or 312 332-5870). Please join us for lively and thought-provoking discussions in one of OLLI’s long standing study groups. No class on 11/22/18.
