How to Educate Yourself with Andrew Flaxman, Creator of Classic Insights

Classic Insights Institute provides a practical, engaging, and personally meaningful guide to some of the highest and greatest achievements of Western culture.  It is a learning experience which meets the needs of many who are dissatisfied with some aspects of traditional academic education.
The program is an innovative, high quality model for how to empower Liberal Arts study.  It meets high academic standards while having a very practical, inspirational and experiential approach to the study of the Humanities.

The material presents a model for how liberal arts should be, but is not.  It is curriculum you always wanted to take but never had the time.  It’s the essence of what is important to know about Rembrandt, Plato, Mozart, Emerson, Franklin, Shakespeare, and many others, but didn‘t know how to ask.  Classic Insights Institute includes revelations found in some of the “Great Books”, but in addition also includes insights into music, art, politics and economics.  It’s the stuff that many of today’s college students will never study as they focus more and more on narrow specialties.

The program consists of over 40 different topics introduced by lecture/guides and is associated with many books and recordings.  Every course includes a personal mentor to help assist by email and video conferences each and every student on a group or on a one-to-one basis.

This approach to Liberal Arts is very different from just teaching evaluating, comparing, analyzing, and memorizing.  Rather we concentrate on practicing and developing imagination, inspiration, and intuition, all higher levels of mindfulness.  The self-knowledge theme of the program provides the motivation to study the associated materials because virtually everyone is interested in themselves.  This guided survey of the Humanities and its interdisciplinary nature help make the material simpler to understand and assimilate.  Knowing the whole picture facilitates putting the pieces of a puzzle together.   The sense of wholeness provides purpose and meaning to self-study and helps make a pleasure what otherwise might be work.

The ability to think in an imaginative and creative manner is no less important than the abilities to memorize and to solve problems.  Classics Insights offers important insights into thinking, creativity and imagination that are essential to being a successful Human Being.

The fact that we do not have buildings or high-priced instructors enables us to deliver this education entirely online in a very affordable manner.

Andrew Flaxman is the founder and director of Classic Insights.  He received his B.A. from Princeton and graduated cum laude.  He then went on to receive his M.A. in Business from Rutgers.  He is an author, speaker, and teacher, and is passionate about helping people transform their education!
