Using the techniques and systems of classical education, this guide will give you greater pleasure in what you read, and greater understanding of it. Learn To: Read challenging novels or complex historical arguments with case and understanding, Keep a diary of thoughts and reactions to what you have read, Discuss materials with a reading partner, Develop informed opinions about the great books that have shaped our world, Understand the historical continuities and innovations in fiction, autobiography, history, drama, poetry, and science, Newly updated and expanded. The Well-Educated Mind now includes standout works from the twenty-first century, additional guides and help, and a brand-new chapter on how to read the most important science texts, from Aristotle and Galileo to Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking. With her thought-provoking questions on each genre and her extremely useful annotated lists of what to read and how to begin each of the genres covered, Susan Wise Bauer offers us the tools to reclaim our love of reading and to further our own education in meaningful ways.
