How is Leisure Learning different from other great books programs?
Leisure Learning differs from other great books programs in very important ways. First, you get a lot more time with the mentors. Instead of meeting once a week, we will meet for an hour each day, Monday-Thursday. This has many benefits, among which are the following: you never have to worry about homework or getting behind, so the course is stress free; and you won’t get frustrated trying to work through a difficult text on your own.
Secondly, we spend more time on the books themselves. We move through them at a slower pace so that we can look at the literary, philosophical, and personally applicable aspects of the text and get the most out of them possible.
Thirdly, our classes are smaller than most other great books classes. We want to help you learn to think about great books and in our opinion this requires a small class.
