The Great Books largely re-integrate into one course what was so laboriously divided (dis-integrated) and taught separately in elementary grades. Analysis and synthesis are both necessary in a complete education. The Great Books run the gamut of subjects from theology (e.g. St. Thomas Aquinas), the language arts (e.g. Homer, Virgil, Shakespeare) and science (e.g., Copernicus, Einstein) to geography (Ptolemy), philosophy (Socrates, Plato, Aristotle), cartography and history (Herodotus, Thucydides), social studies (e.g., Herodotus, Gallic Wars, Freud), and even math (Euclid, Nicomachus of Gerasa). It is possible to break the Great Books courses down into some of these areas for separate grades, if a state so requires. We have done so HERE
