For more than twenty years we have offered a highly successful double-credit, two-semester introductory course in the Integrated Program in Humane Studies at Kenyon College, Gambier, Ohio, USA. We study a series of texts from the Western tradition in historical sequence, among the works of Homer, the Hebrew and Christian Bible, and works from a wide range of other figures, among them Herodotus, Thucydides, Plato, Aristotle, Virgil, Augustine, Aquinas, Dante, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Kant, Hegel, Marx, Freud, and Nietzsche. We attribute much of the success of our program to its distinctive three-part pedagogical structure, involving lecture, seminar, and tutorials.
