First aired on KGO-TV in San Francisco from 1953–54, this original series offers a synoptical approach to the Great Books. This compendium includes Adler’s philosophic renditions of art, democracy, emotions, freedom, justice, progress, forms of government, liberal education, and more.
“It cannot be too often repeated that philosophy is everybody’s business. To be a human being is to be endowed with the proclivity to philosophize…Acknowledging this is not enough. It is also necessary to understand why this is so and what philosophy’s business is. The answer…in two words, is great ideas—the ideas basic and indispensable to understanding ourselves, our society, and the world in which we live.”—Mortimer Adler
