Who are we and how are we connected? We will carefully read works from seminal sources and then discuss them, Great Books style, with the goal of gaining greater understanding of how we are related to one another, to the society we find ourselves in, and to the larger world. All readings may be downloaded from the instructor’s web site. Topics include: them and us; man and God; man and duty; black and white; man and woman; man and morality; parent and child; man and the State.

Holding both undergraduate and advanced degrees from the University of Chicago, Bob Wiley ( was formally trained in Great Books leadership techniques. He has led many courses at the College for Seniors, Blue Ridge Community College, and the Brevard Library.
