Great Books is inspired by a curriculum and a book list, as well as a method of education. Mortimer Adler lists three criteria for including a book on the list:

1. the book has contemporary significance; that is, it has relevance to the problems and issues of our times;
2. the book is inexhaustible; it can be read again and again with benefit;
3. the book is relevant to a large number of the great ideas and great issues that have occupied the minds of thinking individuals for the last 25 centuries.
