Great Books promotes reading, thinking, and the exchange of ideas through the “shared inquiry” method.


Great Books uses a method called "shared inquiry", which is a discussion process that enables participants who have carefully read the same work to help each other explore and understand the work. A leader provides questions that challenge the participants to think for themselves. The conversation allows participants to share their perspectives and respond to the interpretations of others; it uncovers new and deeper meanings for everyone engaged in this dialogue. It is a method that works, that is exciting, and fun. If you like to share your ideas and enjoy being challenged, "shared inquiry" will work for you.


Philadelphia Great Books is associated with over 30 book groups in the PA/NJ/DE area. Please contact us if you would like a listing of available book groups, or if your current book group is interested in shared inquiry and in joining Great Books.
