Born in New York, Mortimer Adler was educated at Columbia University. Later as a philosophy instructor there, he taught in a program focused on the intellectual foundations of Western civilization. Called to the University of Chicago in 1927 by President Robert Maynard Hutchins, Adler played a major role in renovating the undergraduate curriculum to center on the "great books. His philosophical interests committed to the dialectical method crystallized in a defense of neo-Thomism, but he never strayed far from concerns with education and other vital public issues.
A founder of the "great books" movement, Adler ( How to Read a Book ) opens this collection of his essays that span a half century with a stinging rebuke to The Closing of the American Mind, Allan Bloom's pessimistic appraisal of today's colleges. Academic malaise, Adler counters, is rooted in the deficiencies of basic schooling.
