Roosevelt Montas was born in the Dominican Republic and moved to New York City as a teenager. He’s now a professor at Columbia University and a proponent of the great books and liberal education. How this happened, and why, is the subject of today’s conversation. We also discuss whether books are essential for a liberal arts education, why we need other people to become liberally educated, and what he found captivating about Socrates.
