If you like great ideas, great writing and stimulating discussions, please join us to learn from outstanding works of writing.

We'll discuss the essay "On Studying" by Jose Ortega y Gasset (1883-1955), Spain's most famous 20th century philosopher. He influenced many people of his time not only by his philosophical ideas, but since his writings are very readable and accessible. For the text (14 pp), contact: <>
