Description:
 Great Conversations is a national program sponsored by the Great Books Foundation. The Main objective of the Great Conversations course at The Spanish River Library, conducted by Renato R. Bellu, PhD, Professor Emeritus of The City University of New York, is to provide a non academic environment for people who enjoy reading short stories and selections from works by great authors. Participants are encouraged to follow their own personal interpretation of the readings, thus avoiding prepackaged "expert" critical opinions. The course is targeted to individuals who are at the student level. The focal point of the discussion is on the relevancy of the selection to the present day reader. In addition, a general introduction to major propositions by Rene Descartes, Max Planck and John Rawls is discussed through a hand-out of Conceptual Models.
