Description
20 years after the publication of Vital Remnants: America’s Founding and the Western Tradition, a book that set out to help America remember her vital roots in the western tradition, Dr. Gary L. Gregg II takes up the title of Vital Remnants once more to continue the mission of serving the future by remembering, thinking about, and learning from the great thinkers of the past. Join Dr. Gregg as he guides listeners through some of the most important texts in human history. Whether you are looking for help in reaching a long abandoned reading goal and continuing your life-long learning, or looking for leadership and life lessons from something deeper than the latest self-help book, Gregg brings a quarter of a century's worth of experience teaching leadership to help you along the way. Vital Remnants from our shared past await to inspire, encourage, and teach us today just as they changed the world we have inherited.
