He shows us that there is a cosmos, an ordered whole, that may be different than we expect. He invites us to ask questions about the world we see and sets us on the road to philosophy.” Jonathan Llovet (’17) On Ptolemy Work Studied Almagest Austen “Austen’s characters can never be defined by just one adjective. They are real and for me they act as a constant reminder of the complexity of a human being.” Supriya Tamang (’17) On Jane Austen Work Studied Pride and Prejudice Plato “In a world where the pursuit of knowledge is pushed aside in favor of a ‘right answer,’ reading Plato is a breath of fresh air. Socrates does not want a solution; he knows nothing, he just wants a conversation about the topic.” Ripley Stroud (’17) On Plato Works Studied Parmenides, Republic Confucius “Confucius made me think about the lack of regularity and ritual in my life, helping me come to a better understanding that I wasn’t an isolated atom, and the power of ritual could help me overcome that feeling.” Charles Rohr (MA’15) On Confucius Work Studied Analects Homer “The Odyssey, on the surface, seems a tale of a man coming home. But Homer forced me to ask, after such strife, after such a monumental shift in life, what is required for the warrior to be able to return?” Edward E. Duke III (’17) On Homer Works Studied Iliad, Odyssey Machiavelli “Machiavelli forces us to consider a darker, more cynical, and possibly more true-to-life form of politics. In reading ‘The Prince,’ we look ruthless pragmatism in the face, and it is horrifying. I came out appreciating good, just, and principled leadership more than ever before.” Sawyer M. Neale (’18) On Machiavelli Works Studied The Prince, Discourses on Livy Ptolemy Austen Plato Confucius Homer Machiavelli The St. John's Program At St. John’s, great books—and great discussions—are the heart of the college’s distinctive liberal arts program. Students are part of an intellectual community and investors in their own education, from conversations around the seminar table to those that take place beyond classroom walls. Inspired by some of the most brilliant minds in the Western tradition, students push themselves to think deeply, discuss intensely, and live boldly—and then carry that passion into the world.
