At Harrison Middleton University, students will learn to establish a set of questions to which all authors can be interpreted as giving answers. By summarizing the opposing answers of authors to various interpretive questions on one side of an issue or another, students will define and analyze the issues, themes, and problems of western civilization. The goal is not only to gain knowledge of the past, but to also reach for the best wisdom of all the ages, for our own enlightenment and for the understanding of contemporary problems.
