I enjoyed your article, though I did not attend this particular long novel weekend. However I am one of the people you referred to. My formal education was all science and math from the age of sixteen. I bumped into Great Books in the nineteen sixties at a Marin Fair and have been an active participant ever since, to my great advantage.
