Great Books discussion groups are forums for thoughtful adults to read and discuss significant works of fiction, philosophy, political science, poetry, and drama. Great Books discussions are non-didactic, open-ended gatherings where people of all backgrounds come to talk about substantial literature and the great ideas and issues that literature addresses.Library: Millhopper Branch Library Millhopper Branch Library
Discussions are lively, engaging, friendly, sometimes contentious, probing, enlightening—and a good deal of fun. Participants challenge their own and others' beliefs and opinions in the light of a rich, thought-provoking text.
The object of a Great Books discussion is not to go home with the "right answer." The object is to examine the many questions raised by a text and to test some of the many possible answers by looking back to the text, using sound reasoning informed by our own experience.
