About Shimer College: At Shimer we read the original sources written by some of the greatest minds that have influenced both Eastern and Western thought. Our classes are seminar-style where we gather together around a table to discuss many different subjects—from science and philosophy, to literature and political thought. Each class is taught by one professor who participates in the discussion as a fellow learner and moderator who ensures all thoughts are treated with respect and due consideration as we endeavor to discover the richness within the text. Our discussion classes make Shimer a great place to improve your reading and communication skills—both written and verbal.
