But a Great Book must be relevant to human problems in every century, not just germane to current 20th century problems, Adler wrote. The educational purpose of the Great Books is not to study Western civilization, Adler explained in the s. Its aim is not to acquire knowledge of historical facts.

It is rather to understand the great ideas. Adler gives a thorough overview of the most influential ideas in Western history from A to Z, and it rocks. I wish every person could atleast go over this book once (or ten times!) because of the value of an education in the history of ideas.

There isn't any other book like this at all; it is truly unique/5(6). Additional Physical Format: Online version: Great ideas today, [Chicago]: Encyclopeida Britannica, © (OCoLC) Document Type: Book.
