  • Great Ideas from Great Books, Mortimer Adler:
    • What Makes a Book Great?
    • Great books are those that contain the best materials on which the human mind can work in order to gain insight, understanding, and wisdom. Each in its own way raises the recurrent basic questions which people must face. Because these questions are never completely solved, these books are the sources and monuments of a continuing intellectual tradition.
    • The richness of great books shows itself in the many levels of meaning they contain. They lend themselves to a variety of interpretations. This does not mean that they are ambiguous or that their integrity is compromised. The different interpretations complement one another and allow the reader to discover the unity of the work from a variety of perspectives. We need not read other books more than once to get all that they have to say. But we can always go deeper into great books. As sources of enlightenment, they are inexhaustible.
