"The professors in the Ashbrook Scholar Program are eager to help guide their students' dialogue with the great thinkers of the past in any way they can, but their assistance is not the focus of the class. Instead, Ashbrooks attempt to understand them as they understood themselves. In a way, Ashbrooks take classes with the great thinkers, not with second-hand accounts from textbooks or professors."
