The purpose of this creative project is to develop an anthology of significant essays for undergraduate liberal arts education. Each essay is preceded by an introduction about the author and the importance of his work. Each essay will encourage the student to think actively and consistently about ideas and issues and to develop a greater sensitivity for and understanding of the world around him.

I have chosen the following twenty-five authors from the nineteenth and twentieth century for this anthology: Henry Thoreau, Henry Adams, Mark Twain, John Stuart Mill, Leo Tolstoy, Friedrich Nietzsche, Susan Anthony, William James, Bertrand Russell, Jane Addams, Walter Rauschenbusch, Clarence Darrow, Henry Mencken, Learned Hand, George Bernard Shaw, James Thurber, Reinhold Niebuhr, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Hermann Hesse, Siegfried Lenz, Jean-Paul Sartre, Susan Sontag, Martin Luther King, Michael Harrington, and Albert Schweitzer.
