Literature Studies

“The reading of all good books is like a conversation

with the finest (people) of the past centuries.”

– Descartes

In 2011, Keith Oatley published an article in “Scientific American Mind” called, “In the Minds of Others” in which he explains how fiction helps readers understand people. “The process of entering imagined worlds of fiction builds empathy and improves your ability to take another person’s point of view,” he writes. “It can even change your personality ... The emotional empathy that is critical to our day-to-day relationships also enables us to picture ourselves living as the characters do when we read fiction.”

 

Through the books in our literature program, we aim to turn out thinkers who wield power through language. We want our students to love books, to learn how to navigate through a variety of situations,  and to establish what is moral and good; we want our students to learn through their readings how to be the best person they can be in any situation.
