Philosophy and Ideas Studies
The Lit Salon’s studies of Philosophy and Ideas explore works of philosophy, history, political science, psychology, religion and the natural sciences that challenge us to examine how we think about ourselves and the world around us.
In our ongoing monthly Great Ideas, Great Books study, you will read key texts in the western intellectual tradition by authors such as Homer, Sophocles, Plato, Dante, Shakespeare, Machiavelli, Milton, Marx, Austen and Eliot.
Also monthly, our Spontaneous Philosophy group meets for an on-the-spot close reading of concise and provocative selections from the world’s most influential thinkers across the ages—and, there’s no advance prep necessary.
