‘Great Books’ Explained in 15 Minutes (or Less!)

by Thomas A. Shakely

Jane Shaw joins host Andy Nash in this week’s episode of InsideAcademia.tv for a frank conversation on the Great Books.

A frequent Phi Beta Cons contributor — and, of course, president of the John William Pope Center for Higher Education Reform — she explains the role of the Great Books, and why they’re largely shunned in the curriculum today. A must-watch, especially for anyone seeking to explain their worth to children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
