Great Books of the Western World is a series of books originally published in the United States in 1952, by Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc., to present the Great Books in a 54-volume set.(It may usefully be thought of as a "10 year liberal education course" or the Holy Mother of all English lit classes.)
Syntopicon: An Index to The Great Ideas (1952) is a two-volume index, published as volumes 2 and 3 of Encyclopædia Britannica's collection Great Books of the Western World. ... The term “syntopicon” was coined specifically for this undertaking, meaning “a collection of topics.”Nota bene:A full set of the GBWW resides on Face's shelves, and I once thought to reproduce it in epub form but really all I wanted was the syntopicon. --co.Definition:The two volumes that make up the Syntopicon comprise a distinctive kind of index. The term "syntopicon" means a collection of topics. 30 centuries of continuous discussion between the great minds are mapped as ideas and themes for common problems. It is termed a "Great Conversation."  102 ideas have been mapped out by scholars.For syntopicon discussion please see:https://www.thegreatideas.org/syntopicon.htmlFor a Titles List, Please see:https://prodigalnomore.wordpress.com/great-books-of-the-western-world-as-free-ebooks/72 Authors in the 1st Ed.15 more Authors in the 2nd Ed.46 more Authors added for the 20th century.Total Authors:  133.  That's just the authors, not the total number of titles contributed.  That makes it unrealistic for me to try to number them as for a series.Many of these titles are in the calibre library but I haven't given them the GBWW tag, yet.
=====Not to be confused with the Harvard Classics, which I had, I skimmed, and I sold.(Definition: Harvard Classics Complete Set 51 Volumes First Edition (The Five Foot Shelf Of Books) Hardcover – 1909.)
