We are a Great Books reading and discussion group that specializes in political philosophy. Over the years we have read a wide variety of thinkers, from Plato to Richard Rorty. We are currently reading on the theme of political economy. Our readings so far have included Cantillon, Turgot, Smith, Condorcet, Malthus, Say, Bentham, James Mill and David Ricardo. We plan to cover the great books of political economy in roughly chronological order. Our group is open to all comers, so please give us a try!

There is a one-page Discussion Guide describing how we work. Click on "More" and "Files" to download.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
