Your Teachers This Quarter
Your primary teachers this quarter will be Socrates, Plato, Schopenhauer, Martin Buber, and all the other authors you'll be reading, so in effect you are going to have six or eight of the absolute best teachers in the world.
I'll be one of your teachers too, but I see my job to be largely one of helping you to understand what these primary teachers are saying, and then helping you to make sense of that for yourselves.
When reading these authors, your job will be twofold, and the two parts will need to be done in this order:
Homepage | Plato | Hebrews | Plutarch | Locke | Berkeley | Hume | Kant | Schopenhauer | Swedenborg | Buber | Tolstoy
