Why study Don Quijote de la Mancha?
“Don Quijote is a kind of portal that potentially connects the problems of modernity to the wisdom of the past. It just might be the best way to contemplate the classical ideas of geniuses like Plato, Aristotle, and Apuleius, especially regarding such philosophical issues as the nature of personal identity, the origins of political theory, and the importance of social values like justice, freedom, and truth.”
