I am writing to ask for your help! If you were assigning readings for a seminar on Shimer's mission, focusing on what the book is, what liberal education is for, what constitutes a community of inquiry, and how our location at IIT (and Bronzeville) affects us, what might you ask people to read? What would push your edges, or help us think together -- from Shimer's curriculum or beyond? What readings best illustrate what Shimer is about or what it ought to be about? Or videos or webpages or?
Please make the suggestions in the comments section below, and I will collate them! And please spread the word to other Shimerians -- so I can collect their wisdom as well!
Thanks for your help!
