We owe a great debt to Dr. Adler for devoting most of his life to developing, editing, promoting, sustaining and perfecting the Great Books educational reform movement. He has done this from 1921 to the present day. Several of our directors were present at a Socratic Discussion seminar presided over by Dr. Adler as recently as May, 2000. Besides editing the 60 volume Britannica Great Books set (last revised by Dr. Adler in 1990), he has published over 50 books on philosophy and education, including the Great Ideas, which are those ideas contained within the Great Books that make them worth reading and rereading (for example: beauty, truth, goodness). Our Chairman, Max Weismann, co-founded (with Dr. Adler) the Center for the Study of the Great Ideas, in Chicago, which is still promoting this study.
