The concept of education through systematic reading of seminal works themselves (rather than textbooks), was carried on by John Erskine at Columbia University , and, in the 1930s, Mortimer Adler and Robert Hutchins at the University of Chicago, carried this idea further with the concepts of education through study of the " great books " and "great ideas" of Western civilization. This led to the publication in 1952 of Great Books of the Western World , which is still in print and actively marketed. In 1937, under Stringfellow Barr , St. John's College introduced a curriculum based on the direct study of "great books". These sets are popular today with those interested in homeschooling .
