Biographical history

He is an American philosopher, educator, editor, and advocate of adult and general education by study of the great writings of the Western world. While still in public school, Adler was taken on as a copyboy by the New York Sun, where he stayed for two years, before attending Columbia University. He completed his coursework for a bachelor’s degree, but did not receive a diploma because he had refused to take physical education. He stayed at Columbia to teach and earn a Ph.D. (1928) and then became professor of the philosophy of law at the University of Chicago, becoming a proponent of the pursuit of liberal education. He is an author of the 54-volume series Great Books of the Western World (1952) and conceived and directed the preparation of its two-volume index of great ideas, the Syntopicon. In 1952 he became director of the Institute for Philosophical Research (initially in San Francisco and from 1963 in Chicago).
